Re: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot IV 2012 round II

It's heeerrrrre! Just started snowing a little while ago.

Ended up taking the afternoon off so I could get ahead of the weather. It's better that I should take time off and for sure not be productive than risk letting me work at home and be slightly less productive.

Just looked out the window, and noticed that it is now snowing here as well.

It's not the snow I worry about, but the wind. With a west-facing bedroom, I probably will not get much sleep tonight...

Still just raining and not much else going on here.

Just after posting this I look outside and it's snowing like mad.

Yeah, the wind is pretty bad. Only briefly hit the 55mph they were predicting though. I was waiting for my patio door to blow in or shatter!

Less than an inch of snow however, and at least according to the Rockford forecast it's about over. Can see on the radar the edge of the system is just west of I-39 right now. Still it's enough to create white out conditions in open areas.

Same here. Its windy, but it looks like it has stopped snowing.
Looking out at the front yard, it looks like we just got a little more then a dusting on the grass and the cars. The driveway, street, and sidewalk are wet and have little to no snow on them.

a feeling there gonna be more snow when I wake up ... I'm been looking at the radar and it still doesn't look good.

of ice on the driveway.

We got 12" out here

I hate snow, so count yourselves lucky! Fortunately, my neighbor was kind enough to know that I don't own a snowblower so he did my sidewalks and driveway for me.

Sure was all I saw on my driveway was a teeny patch of ice.

My brother who came from Drake U got lucky because he drove in 1 day before you guys got hammered.

That's great timing, because 3 days later after the snow the roads are still in terrible conditions. Yes Iowa, keep throwing sand on your roads you fools!

Never understood the sand thing. Seems pointless.

Is it going to snow? Who knows this time! I think the national weather service has given up trying to predict the snow.

We're suppose to hit the 50s next week? When do we get snow?
This is very unusual. A lot of ppl depends on snow for their income.

While that sucks for them. Betting your lively hood on weather is not a bet I'd ever place. Personally, I hope it stays this way.
