Let's play a little game of SCENARIOS: BEST CASE/WORST CASE, shall we?
WORST CASE: The storm doesn't get going until 8 or 9 AM; after a brief but intense period of snow, sleet begins to mix in; rain takes over the sleet by noon; a hard, cold rain falls for the rest of the night as temps rise
BEST CASE: Around 4 AM the NWS changes the Watch to a Warning. The snow starts to come down just as the Superintendents of Berkshire County wake up and take their first peek out the window. The temperature predictions are lower than expected, and the snow and sleet is expected to last into the afternoon (thus the change to the Warning).
The GSD Staff would be delighted to see the best case scenario, but--here comes the wet blanket--our confidence is just not very high for Storm Moonracer. We don't want to sell this storm short, as it
When you wake up tomorrow morning, the first thing you should check (yes, even before you check GSD) is the temperature. If it's above freezing--make that lunch, you're going to school. At 30, 31 or 32--you might get the delay call; wait for it. Twenty-nine and below--hit the snooze button because you probably aren't going to school.
