Storm 2.2 Still on Track

Break out the barometers, folks, because all signs are pointing to a moderate to heavy snowfall for Tuesday night into Wednesday. The timing couldn't be better. Ice and wet snow may work into the storm for the Berkshires, which would keep snow totals down, but whether we get 6" or 12", it sounds like the morning commute on Wednesday is going to be a disaster. Yee-ha!

We're still 48 hours away...don't get too excited...the track could change...we got burned last time...blah, blah, blah. GSD likes the sound of "Groundhog Day Blizzard 2011," and right now we're just going to get crazy and throw caution to the wind: we're calling for 6" to 9" of snow, and if the storm does what it's supposed to do, we'll have all day to get a jump on those early third quarter assignments or work on any research papers you might have due in a few weeks.

Here's some extra info from NOAA. Snow totals for the last ten years for Albany:

2009-10:  45.4 INCHES
2008-09:  52.6 INCHES
2007-08:  61.1 INCHES
2006-07:  45.9 INCHES
2005-06:  30.2 INCHES
2004-05:  75.9 INCHES
2003-04:  65.1 INCHES
2002-03: 105.4 INCHES
2001-02:  47.4 INCHES
2000-01:  77.1 INCHES

 As of this morning, we're at 47.2" for the season in Albany. With two more storms in the chamber, it looks like this winter could blow away snow totals all the way back to 2002-3.
