We've had on and off again flurries... and lots of dippin' dots. We expect up to 6" accumulation by Friday. But then we're going to get it again in the weekend. It's such a blast to see the shoots coming up through the snow.
You are SO right! It is totally ridiculous people over here are when the flakes start to fall. All of the TV news makes it sound like an impending disaster of biblical proportions. A flurry with less than 1/2" shuts down the area. There is no accumulation on the roads and the temp is above 35, but I still hear people telling me "drive safely out there." Back in Texas we don't even slow down for 6 inches of snow.
I've driven to and from work on days when the snow is coming down so hard and fast that the only way I can tell where the road is is by the little reflector poles sticking up on the sides because you can no longer see the lines or the road itself!
