Good afternoon everyone! 

It is looking like via the forecast models that Thursday Night and Friday we are going to have the biggest snowfall yet of the season.  On the low end (as in the lowest possible) it appears to be around 5 inches.  On the high end it will be 13.5 inches.  So in all probability we will get somewhere in the middle.

The system has shifted to the North more, which means that we will be getting more snowfall than originally expected. We currently do have a Winter Storm Watch out for us. They said 6-9 inches. I think they are sitting on that 13.5 forecast right now and not making that public.

We all know it is Mother Nature, and she will do what she wants. And I think they are sitting on that forecast right now, because that sure is a lot of snow and they probably don’t want the public to panic.  But the latest models are showing an increase in snowfall amounts since the system has now shifted.

I would suggest everyone to start preparing for a lot of snow. And possibly being stuck home a day or two.  Go get extra food, water, salt, shovels, gas, etc…  The typical stuff.  Make sure your snowblowers are running.

Enough about the snow for now, I am sure I will be posting photos and videos of the event in the next few days


 

Guess what day it is?  It is X-Files tonight!   So heads up, do not bother me from 7-8 PM tonight, lol.  I turn off all my gadgets and don’t answer the phone or doors while the X-Files is on (also Walking Dead, which will be starting up soon too)   So kick back and watch the X-Files tonight 🙂


I have been updating my website here in the last few days. I been updating the pages. And messing around with stuff. I am going to be adding new fonts probably later on tonight or tomm.   I like to have a blog that has color and spice to it. Instead of the plain fonts. Yes, it is easier to read with it being plain. But I hate being plain, I like to be unique.  🙂  So be on the lookout for the new font styles in the near future!
