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

Snowy Afternoon (Feb. 8)

While the east braces for its second heavy snowfall in four days, we sit and wait again for our meager few inches. Snow is just starting to move into Southern Berkshire County (as of 11 AM), and the entire county should see snow by 1 PM or so.

The 11 AM radar. The snow is moving north and west over our area.
The window of opportunity, as they say, is fairly short with this one, meaning that the snow will end well before midnight. The grand total will be about 2 inches. With that cheery news, the chances for delays on Tuesday have just gone out the window.

The Tuesday/Wednesday snow event is not shaping up either. We will see less snow from it than we will see today.

There are some rumblings about a more moderate snow event for Saturday. We've got our eye on it. That only thing that we do know for sure is that it will be VERY cold that day--highs in the low teens are likely.
