Storm forecast started as a 3"-6" storm a few days ago. Last night I went to sleep with a forecasted 6"-12" storm & woke up this morning with a forecasted 1'-2' storm! Wow! What a difference a few days make. Looks like a good beginning to a new year.
It looks like another fizzle for here. Last night we were due for storm totals of 4-6". NWS has an advisory out this morning which says maybe 2" by the time it's over. Local weatherguesser is calling for 2-5 here with more south of us (again). I'm not getting my hopes up, will know more what it will do in 24 hours.
Got in a complete salt app from last nights ice, sleet & snow. Break in radar here right now, but looks like it should start back up as plain rain for most of the day. Then they are saying 3"-5" tonight. That's a great kind of 2 day storm if it pans out. I'd rather have that heavy precip during today be rain, instead of the heavy, wet 12"-16" it would be if it stayed snow here. NWS says the snow to liquid with this storm is 7\8 to 1. Good luck to everyone who gets ice or snow!!

This would be one of the many days not having a day job would rock. So the weather station said we got 2 to 4 as a recap, but predicted 1-2 last night. So this morning I go out and 4-6 everywhere I check. As the 7am mark gets near, normal contracts done, I went home, dropped the blade and drove into work, yep, lot's of money passed up on the way in to my "job". UGH. 1' in front of most drives and lot's that had not been pushed at that time from the DOT plows. A couple of pullouts and almost tears, as I had to just let them go. I would quit the day job if we had 300" every year... WOW...
We'll be heading back out to clean up in about an hour. We had maybe 6" here but other areas right around us got significantly more due to lake effect. Plowed 12:30am-9:30am last night and will probably need only half that amount of time to finish tonite.
