    Whats up with that! It could never snow in North Dakota, It always goes to the Northern part of the state, or to the south!!!! I hate it. I see almost all of SD is in a winter storm watch, with snow amounts up to 6 inches on wed.
    Im going to go crawl in a hole, Im starting to get pretty crabby latly!!!!

    The local weather guesser said, S.D. could get upto a foot of snow from this storm.

    last year at this time we had more snow then we knew what to do with. I guess we just got spoiled last year, so it seems extreamly bad this year. They just said on the weather we might not get anything out of this storm, or if we do it will be very little.

    The NWS watch indicates 1/4" of freezing rain, then in up to 5 to 7" of snow. The ice part is no fun. If it does happen, powerlines will take it in the shorts.

    I am excited about the snow though.

    Sno farmer - I like your weather guesser. Hope he is right. KELO thinks everything south of I-90 has the best bet for this. I am 30 miles north of the Intersate.

    Right now central South Dakota is getting some snow. Looks like the next 3 days they are forecasting it. Was planning on leaving town this weekend to the annual family gathering. Will have to wait and see.

    We got 2 inches yesterday morning, so we pushed all last night and this morning. Now they just issued a winter storm warning, for tonight through monday, with total snow of 5-12". We'll see what happens. Im sure it will be a bunch of rain!

    while you guys are talking about 6" of snow, I took a walk in the yard today--------there are buds on the lilac and blueberry bushes.

    My grass is still green, and only today was there even a slight hint of frost on the ground.

    Sure we could get some winter, but the longer this goes on, the more I'm planning on spring already.
