With Wintery weather this week on the east coast, I wish everyone safe travels and I will see you on Friday.

Thanks. same to you.
Coming from Ohio the weather looked fine recently. Today I see the temperatures are going to be lower as I get further east. I probably won't need it, but as usual for Cold Wars, I am bringing my snow shovel just in case.

In Lititz, north of Lancaster, the snow has melted except in the shady spots. It will freeze tonight, but by Thursday/Friday, it should be dry … if you believe the weather men or the groundhog.

Cold and windy in Harrisburg, PA, the only snow visible is on lawns and non-paved surfaces. Dress warm, travellers!

I looks like our friends in Massachusetts will have the roughest time. Godspeed, brothers.

Safe travels, especially if you're heading down early from the Northeast.

"I looks like our friends in Massachusetts will have the roughest time. Godspeed, brothers."

That is the truth! Spent the last three hours digging out and will have to get up early to finnish. But we are still planning on leaving in the morning to get there early. We will be stopping on way to visit the new Museum of the American Revolution.

Weather outlook locally is relatively clear, low chance of precip, and windy, warming trend starts Saturday.

Yup, should be crisp and sunny. Not bad Carp, not bad at all.

Got hammered here with snow yesterday, over 13 inches. Managed to get out of my complex without much of a hassle, grab my van from Enterprise and had no issues getting into my building to pack and load the van.

Cold Wars wouldn't be Cold Wars without some sort of storm before or during, this is the fourth year in a row.

All I need now is for plenty of you to show up ready to spend money, so make it happen……………;)……………I'll be wheeling and dealing in the dealer hall, have a raftload of painted and unpainted 28mm buildings, mostly for Napoleonics, ACW and Wild West……………travel safe everyone.

Safe travels all. Hopefully my ride wont be bad, leaving from Pittsburgh across the turnpike.

Roads clear here in Central PA (Harrisburg, about 34 miles NW of Lancaster Host).
No appreciable precip expected through the weekend, but windy is the flavor of the days.
See y'all there, drive safe, and remember: Some Pennsylvanians _will_ let you ease into traffic or behave in a polite and courteous driving style. Try not to let this shock you into having an accident.

After digging out hoped in the car with my buddy and made the drive down to Cold Wars. No snow, roads are excellent here. But very cold. Tomorrow we go to the new Museum of the American Revolution. Then cold wars on Friday to sunday. Look forward to this each year.

Moe the Great15 Mar 2018 6:00 a.m. PST

Thanks for the updates. I'm leaving early Friday AM.

511PA link states some light snow/visibility issues on I-76 west of Carlisle to the Ohio line, and I-476 in Northeastern PA, as well as some traffic slowing due to accidents.
Also check out the site for real-time traffic flow map:

Wish I could upload pics…. left in about 1.5-2 FEET of snow…. Once I got to I80 though… clean driving.. even in the mountains by State college.

The trip back was clean and clear.

AND THANKS for the goblins! I also found another small bag of the 15mm WW1 Germans… I'll pass them off to you at the next show.
