Ended up with about 2" over night, but look out, it looks like a major dump is coming this weekend.

Heavy wet snow - about 4 inches ... so far. Trees and power lines are covered (never good). The scanner is going nuts cars over the hill, in the ditch and so on.

NOAA radio still calling for it change over to freezing rain for a few hours then back to more snow. :gaah:

We're due for about a foot, according to the local news. It's been snowing hard since about 4:00PM with no sign of letting up.

Ouch

The weather outside is frightful:gaah:(snow turned to sleet turned to rain turned to sleet turned to snow) but the log fire is so delightful, along with knowing I'll be ok if the lights go out.

The 35 mph wind doesn't help much either. :surrender:

I'm viewing the Weather Channel and getting a kick watching a segment of how lots of panic is sweeping the food stores right now. A store employee was saying it was a madhouse.

Really.... it's just a day of bad weather and the herd is rushing to get staples like its hitting the fan Armageddon style.

This is a perfect example of how people react to the slightest of discomfort.

I've got 14" on my back deck and it's not even phasing me and I don't think I'll have to crack open any #10 cans of my Mountain House stash.
