Storm Watch 2009

That's what we derisively refer to the threat of snow as around here, following a snowstorm some years ago that stubbornly failed to materialize despite the most determined predictions from our local forecasters, TV news guys with parkas standing on barren street corners looking for a flake (other than themselves), and a general air of manufactured "Oh, My God, It's Going To Snow A Whole Lot!"

The current massive low that's about to pass over our area has tracked to the south, which means that we're in pretty good shape. The folks in Iowa to the west and Wisconsin to the north and west, not so much. Enough of our precipitation came down as rain on warm ground that we've only got a couple of inches so far. We may get a couple more tomorrow. For a storm that's producing three and four foot drifts over in Iowa, that makes me pretty happy.

On the other hand, it's about to get really cold here for December. And that forecast, I believe to be quite accurate. :)
