Blizzard Redux

| December 27, 2006

Uh oh; here we go again. From the National Weather Service, as of 4:30 am this morning:

A WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

HEAVY SNOWFALL IS POSSIBLE ACROSS ALL OF NORTHEAST COLORADO THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY. THIS INCLUDES THE DENVER METRO AREA AND ALL THE URBAN CORRIDOR. ACCUMULATIONS…IN EXCESS OF 12 INCHES MAY OCCUR…WITH THE HEAVIEST AMOUNTS NEAR THE FOOTHILLS AND PALMER DIVIDE. NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS MAY INCREASE TO SPEEDS OF 15 TO 30 MPH. GUSTS AS HIGH AS 45 MPH ARE POSSIBLE WHICH COULD CAUSE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS…ESPECIALLY ON THE PLAINS.

REMEMBER…A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR A HAZARDOUS WINTER WEATHER EVENT IN AND CLOSE TO THE WATCH AREA. SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS MAY OCCUR THAT COULD IMPACT TRAVEL. STAY TUNED TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OR YOUR LOCAL NEWS MEDIA FOR THE LATEST UPDATES AND POSSIBLE WARNING CONCERNING THIS POTENTIAL WINTER STORM.

This means that I need to finish getting the snowpack off of the area in front of our garage before this storm hits and adds to it. Sigh.

And I hear coyotes howling somewhere outside as I type this. If I were them, I’d howl, too. ..bruce..
