Great, just what we need another Nor’easter to make our holidays bright. That is of course if, JCP&L can keep the lights on, Governor Christie doesn’t go on vacation and Middletown can plow the streets without crying poverty or saying the storm took them by surprise. Now all of that would make a White Christmas special!

Up to a foot of snow from was seen from Colorado to Kansas and Oklahoma, and 10-foot drifts were reported in Colorado.As the storm crawled across the region it shuttered highways and has been blamed for at least two fatal car accidents, according to The Associated Press and at least six deaths Monday, according to authorities.“It went from rain to sleet to snow. I slid off into the median and was there for several hours waiting for help,” one motorist told ABC News. “It took me three hours to go 30 miles.”The storm has weakened as it moves east, and it may mostly be a rainmaker, with thunderstorms along the Gulf Coast. Some of these storms could produce heavy rain with minor flooding, gusty winds and some hail.The storm will hit the East Coast Wednesday morning with rain from Atlanta to Boston. Some airport delays are expected as rain and low clouds come into the region. Afterwards, a new storm is predicted to form, which could usher in a white Christmas for millions.
