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

Waiting for Storm Belichick

Even though the polls are open for 14 more hours, it looks like the Master of the Ideal Gas Law will have his name enshrined in immortality with this storm. It may be the biggest honor he'll get this year.

We couldn't help ourselves and thought we'd pass on two little tasty morsels of information before the end of the night. The liquid associated with this storm is supposed to be in the 1-2" range, with more water south than north. That's one chunk of info. Because of the relatively cold temperatures for the next few days, snow to liquid ratios with this storm will be around 15:1. That's our other chunk. If we put the chunks together, that means at least 15" of snow starting later in the afternoon on Monday.

Now you know why weather geeks are all a-tingle with this storm.

We don't think there's going to be much mystery about this storm, but of course we'll keep everyone updated on cancellations when they come in.

You know things are serious if this is how Channel 13 sees it.
And we almost forget...

plowable snow could fall Thursday night into Friday morning as an Alberta Clipper passes through our area and then re-forms along the coast. We thought it would take until February for the storm pattern to change. Fickle Mother Nature strikes again.
