Weather forecasters hyped a big snow event for today. We were told to expect upwards of a half-foot of the white stuff, and they really meant it this time. We still have many hours before the day is done, but it better get started soon. That 1/8” on the grass and wet pavement is making all those administrators who canceled school look like fools. 

I might be wrong, it may really come down between now and early afternoon. We shall see.

In any case, 45 years ago we were hit with theBlizzard of ‘78, now that was some snow.  My wife’s father died during the blizzard, so she remembers it well.

We've already got 3-4 inches of snow in NWI as of this morning (7am). Not sure it's going to be a Snowmaggedon event, but it's still coming down. Loving the WFH on days like this.

Doesn't "blizzard" mean a wind event?
Whatever. I remember drifts being that tall during my time South of Indy in the early 60's.
Climate change back then too, don't ya know?

We got about 5" yesterday. Enough that the HOA had to call out the plow.
