Da snowpocalypse is upon us

9" since late last night. not much wind until a few minutes ago, then it seemed to get interesting. Very interesting. Visibility is now somewhat variable: from 1/6 mile to less than a few feet.

I tried to take a picture to post, but all that came out was looking out from inside a jar of mayonnaise, kinda sorta ish....

Temps are falling, but not rapidly (yet) and things are looking like we have an actual winter like the ones I remember from my childhood. Haven't seen conditions like this at all for the past 10 years or so. Might just get interestingish.

But hey, the fuel in the truck it treated, it is plugged in, and if I have to go into work the emergency survival gear is already packed and I am as ready as I can be.

We were out earlier in the Prius and it wasn't that bad (yet) and if the winds don't drift too much snow it'll be ok, the plow boys and girls are doing a fairly good job.

Tonight will be interesting. Near record cold and blowing conditions making wind chills dangerous for those not smart enough to dress accordingly and/or stay inside.
