Is it too late to fly South?

First came the cold... and now the Weather Bureau predicts snow... up to a inch of it overnight, followed by another half-inch Monday. And that's just the amuse-bouche!

The main course doesn't come until Tuesday, when NOAA says ominously:
Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. Low around 30. Windy, with an east wind between 15 and 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 5 to 9 inches possible.
And would you believe another 1 to 3 inches for dessert on Wednesday? That's the prediction.

Let's hope these geese on barely-frozen-over Hansche Pond were walking to someplace warm and dry. Good idea for the rest of us, too. (Oh, and get the shovel ready and the snowblower primed!)

    Got the single stage and the two stage ready. Even with year old gas, fired right up. Glad the hardware store had matching sized belts for my two stage yesterday.

  2. Is this like the 2-4 inches that was supposed to come last night?

  3. 8:57am - You've nailed it!

  4. Those guys couldn't plan a picnic for two!

  5. It's funny we can't predict the weather right a day in advance yet some say the planet is going to be 4 degrees warmer in 50 years.
