The big Groundhog Day storm has not quite delivered the snow haymaker that we thought it would, and we'll see well under a foot from this messy storm. Sleet had already mixed in at 7:00 am across the county, and with only 4-5" from start of the second phase of the storm, we'll be lucky to get to 8" in the Northern Berkshires today. That is, of course, if the wraparound snow that is now making its way into Ohio does not lead to moderate snow for us later tonight.
It's coming down steadily right now (9:30 am), but we'll definitely see the snow and sleet stop this afternoon. Look for on-again-off-again snow showers throughout the evening. The likelihood of us completing the snow day royal flush is highly unlikely--crews will have plenty of time to clean up roadways for tomorrow's commute. We may be waiting a few years before we even see the possibility of the snowy trinity again. But it was fun while it lasted.
As for the big snow dance video competition, we have a few entries so far and we will extend the deadline through the weekend. Keep them coming and we'll put the best ones up for a vote next week. Here's a sneak peek at the first video--this one may be very hard to beat.
