Early reports are that we're going to get 2 snow storms between Thursday and Sunday. The first is supposed to drop 1-3 inches between Thursday and Friday. Then we're supposed to get hit again this weekend with a massive storm. I've heard some reports saying that we might get up to 2 feet.
But what if we DON'T get these storms. Let's be real here, we've had storms miss us in the past. Especially storms that were supposed hammer the area and then we wake up the following day and there's maybe a dusting on the ground. So before we get all worked up about the end all be all storm of the year, let's let it get a little bit closer to the area. Weather is predicted and it's not a fool proof science. We might not get what they're saying we're going to get.
Personally, I don't get all hot and bothered until the snow is falling. Not only falling but falling for an extended period of time. Could we get hammered over the next few days? Yes. Could the storm actually miss us and we get next to nothing? The answer to that question is also a yes.
