Default Blizzard

Well winter isn't kidding anymore. The high for today is supposed to between -10 and -15, currently it's -12, the windchill has dropped to -44 below. Sustained winds of 37 mph with gusts to 48. We're also getting 6 new inches of snow. Visibility is
The interstate is closed as are the buildings in town and on campus, and it's finals week this week! A lot of pissed of people no doubt went to the library to study only to have to turn around and march back through this mess.

It's at this point in the year when I wonder who in their right mind pulled up in their covered wagon and was like "yeah... lets stay here!".

Anyhow, hope you guys are stayin warm

We got our first snow of the year last night and this morning. Almost 4" on the ground. Two more inches and it'll shut everything down!

It's miserable here- it's sort of raining/misting on top of the 5 inches of snow we got this morning, and in a few hours the temperature is supposed to drop significantly. I don't think it's supposed to get above 0 for the next three or four days, and the winds are picking up. I won't let my kids drive until the roads aren't ice covered.

My house is a cozy 74 degrees. 48 degrees outside. We have a winter snow storm warning in effect through Monday. People out here freak out when any form of water hits the ground. You should see them try to drive when it's wet out here.

We got maybe 2" total in my area. Kids are having a blast, roads are good, but if it freezes tonight like it's supposed to, black ice is probably going to be an issue. I really want to brew today outside, I think that would make for some cool pics.

Ouch that sounds chilly. It was a nippy 68* on my drive around town this morning. I had to roll up my windows because my ears were getting cold!
