    Gonna be fun the next 3 days!

    We are in the sights of a major winter storm, apparently, here in Central Indiana. It's supposed to hit this evening and keep on until Wednesday night. I'll not be surprised if we get a foot of snow out of this.....I know, you downwinders on the Erie Shore and along the other shorelines along the Great Lakes are gonna say..."Only a foot?"

    snow shoes or XC ski time.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    We're supposed to get 8-12 inches of snow and ice up here on Mt. Doom.

















    They will find our bodies in the Spring.

    It is going to be "interesting" for a lot of us. The kids will like it, but not the rest of us.

    Tom, the important question is: will you be firing up the barbecue when there's 12 inches of snow outside?

    Very possibly. It depends on whether the freezing rain brings down the power lines tonight.

    The snow is not gonna be the big thing for central Indiana...ice will be. They are predicting for a potential 1-1.5" of ice. THAT will wreck havoc on powerlines, trees, roofs, roads, etc.

Farther south, including the cities of terre haute, Indianapolis, bloomington, new castle and muncie, warm air is expected to be present and precipitation may fall as sleet or freezing rain. Significant ice accumulation is possible, with ice accumulation of one inch or more. Furthermore, strong winds gusting up to 35 mph are expected from late Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon. This combination will result in widespread downed trees and power lines. A large area of central Indiana may receive large ice accumulations and strong winds by Wednesday afternoon. This will result in widespread trees down and widespread power outages. Long duration power outages will be possible for many people in central Indiana. Uncertainty still exists with the precise track of this system.

Stay alert to the latest forecasts for the latest information on this potentially catastrophic winter storm. , winter storm warning in effect from 7 pm this evening to 7 pm est Wednesday, The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a winter storm warning for heavy snow, sleet and freezing rain, which is in effect from 7 pm this evening to 7 pm est Wednesday. The winter storm watch is no longer in effect. * main impact: roads will likely become impassable due to heavy snow or icing, blowing snow will reduce visibility, travel will become very hazardous or potentially impossible. Ice accumulations may result in widespread, long duration power outages. * accumulations: snow accumulation in excess of 12 to 16 inches is possible in northwest central Indiana. Ice accumulations in excess of one inch are possible along and near the interstate 70 corridor. * timing: precipitation is expected to begin Monday evening and continue through Wednesday afternoon. * other impacts: wind gusts of 35 to 40 mph on Tuesday and Wednesday in combination with heavy ice accumulations will likely result in downed trees and power lines.

    And the snow just started up a little bit ago. Already have a snow emergency declared, and I'll bet the schools will start closing for tomorrow, within the next hour.

    Not rubbing it in, Tom, but Ft. Wayne hasn't seen a flake.

    VIPIR weather radar says 5-8" by the end of Wednesday, possibly mixed with freezing rain. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's commute home! (At least, as long as the ghetto fools recognize the conditions -- they seem to think nothing of passing me @ 40+mph about a foot from my bar.)

    I already e-mailed in to the instructors that I won't be making my 100 mile round trip to school. They'd only cancel classes the moment I pulled in the parking lot anyway.

    + 1000 on 4 wheel drive! There are several heavy duty straps in the Cherokee at all times in case I have to extract someone.

    Well, I have the day off. For the 5th time in a century, Purdue has canceled classes. We have a little break in the storm this morning, but got ice last night and crunchy snow. We're now looking at 16" of snow this afternoon and tonight and tomorrow.

    Fun commute home last night, I swear I checked the radar at 4pm and it should have been clear, but got hit with the first ice as I left the office at 5:30 arriving home 6:40 -- I had at least an eighth inch of ice coating my front side and cracked and crinkled when I got off, trying to move my arms to switch off lights and detach the panniers. Too much fun plus a laugh with the ice armor. Work at home today.

    My office early today... yay! but the snow totals now expected to surpass 20"-24" of snow in the Chicago area! Its really starting to come down now and the wind is gusting to 40mph and this is not even the heaviest snow we are expecting. All businesses and retails stores have signs on them saying they will be closed tomorrow. The city had workers dropping off memos to recommend all businesses close at 2pm today and remain closed until thurs. crazy stuff. Anyone out in this storm stay safe!

    Yup, it made it here, too, Tom!

    Pretty much every school, and several businesses, were closed before sunup today. I knew when I saw last night's radar that I wouldn't be pedaling today.

    And...I didn't. One step off the front porch assured me of the wisdom of that call. And coming home this evening, making the 1+ block walk from the bus stop was a hazard in itself!

    We'll see if I can keep my two appointments tomorrow.....
