A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Game On...Major Snow for Wednesday

Flake Followers, we have ourselves a snow storm. Here's the latest snowfall prediction map from the National Weather Service in Albany:


All you need to know is that the bright fuchsia patch you see over the Berkshires, northwestern Connecticut and southern Vermont means 10 to 14" of snow.

From what we can tell, this storm will be a fast one so the snowfall rate could be very intense in the afternoon hours. We're getting a variety of reports on the exact timing, but it looks like the snow will start to fall in Southern Berkshire County between 9 AM and 10 AM and between 10 AM and 11 AM for Northern Berkshire County.

The timing of the start of the storm is really the only variable that we're focused on at the moment. If we are to see widespread snow days on Wednesday, it will all depend on the projected start of the snow. Right now we think it will be a 50/50 call for your Superintendent and whether or not he or she wants to give you a little extra Turkey Day time.

We will update throughout the day tomorrow once we get better intel about the start of the storm. As for Wednesday travelers, you will need to head out of Dodge by 5 AM if you're heading west, east or north. If you're heading south, you might want to leave Tuesday night or wait until Thursday morning.

Get those shovels ready and get some gas in the snowblower! You'll need extra time to dig out on Thursday.
