Get your winter gear out: Massive snowstorm heading to Northeast

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 18, 2009 10:39 am

Ski resorts on the east coast of the U.S. are getting a gift from Mother Nature: A massive winter storm is getting ready to descend on the region, bringing over a foot of snow from Washington D.C. up to New Jersey.  Although it’s great news for skiers and boarders, it could be awful for those doing their last-minute Christmas shopping and holiday travel.  The storm has generated a huge amount of rain in the south, and will be the worst from Saturday to Sunday.  The snow is supposed to hit D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia Saturday afternoon, and each city could receive 10-20 inches of the white stuff!
