    Some more datails:

    A Blizzard Warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to
    noon MDT Wednesday.

    * Timing... a mix of rain and snow and isolated thunderstorms is
    expected to develop early this evening and then change to snow
    before midnight. The snow will be heavy at times through early
    Wednesday morning with snowfall rates around 1 inch per hour.

    * Accumulation/wind... total accumulations of 5 to 10 inches will
    be possible. North winds will increase to 25 to 35 mph with
    some gusts to 50 mph after midnight through Wednesday morning
    with blizzard conditions expected.

    * Main impact... roads will become icy and snowpacked tonight
    with very hazardous travel conditions. Visibilities will be
    reduced to near zero at times after midnight with travel
    becoming nearly impossible through Wednesday morning.

    * Other impacts... temperatures will be turning much colder with
    wind chill readings dropping to near 10 degrees

    Got in a real nice ride this afternoon... maybe the last one for a few days anyway. For the last week or so we have had more serious and consistent WIND than I have seen before. Yuck.

    It sure does look like cold and possible snow are indeed headed our way from the plains out west. I am braced for it with plenty of chili on board! Perhaps I will do a spin class Friday.

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    Hehehe! Not for us, this time, Buddy! According to the National Weather: High Pressure, sunny, upper 50's-low 60's and in their words, "sort of warm." We had ours last weekend.

    No, that's quite all right Mr. Fox. You may keep this one out West. We had a Nor'Easter last weekend. Already.

    So not ready for this...can we have a few more weeks of decent weather?

    Well, it is not quite as bad as predicted - at least at my home. A bit further south it is worse. We have several inches of snow, some wind, temp is 26F, but not what one might call a "blizzard."

    Lots and lots of "accidents" - is there such a thing as a "purpose?" - and some schools closed. It will be 43F tomorrow and 52F on Friday.

    Old guys, sittin' around talkin' about the weather.

    Must be watching the "Weather" Channel. I gave up on them like 10 years ago.
    1) They started showing weather from like 20-30 years ago. Who cares?
    2) They started pushing the "global warming" hoax.
    3) If you are in an area where it snows, there will ALWAYS be snow forecasted 4 days out, to get you to watch to see what happens.
    The Weather Channel has lost me as a viewer forever.

    Smart phone and My Cast weather app is about all you need. Weather Bug is good but it got so slow I had to move to another app.

    Must be bad--The warning was on BBC News 2 days ago so if you haven't had it yet--Hibernate.

    Nothing here so far. Got my snowblower moved from the shed to the garage and gave it an oil change. It's sitting right under my trike - gee, I wonder which one will get moved first?
