Going to be a fun week. Weather.com saying freezing rain Wednesday night for Dayton followed by 8-12 inches* snow during Thursday and additional 3-5 inches** that night***

*- obligatory “I’ve got 8-12 inches for you” joke

** - obligatory “I’ve got 3-5 inches for you” joke

*** - still a few days out so we’ll see how this forecast changes.

I’ve ignored all weather forecasts from all apps, sites, forecasters for a while. 2 Thursday’s ago we were being called for 6-9 inches for the previous 5 days of forecasts by numerous outlets. Next morning woke up to a spitting snow and 0 inches….I was pissed the first few hours of school lol.

I’m 60 miles south of that so whatever it is, it is. I’ll plan on 5 days of school. Any days off or delays will be a bonus.

That’s typically how I view it, too. But I think to predict up to 15 inches, even if they’re off a bit, we’re still in for a decent amount. 

Weather.com has no shame predicting amounts days out. The local guys will basically wait til the day before then give a range of “could be 1-3 inches here, could be 2-4 inches north, could be just a dusting down south, who knows” forecast.

No worries.  The firewood bin on my porch is filled up.  Bring on the White Doom and Mr. Freeze.

i'd like to have the daily updated forecasts captured here. I suspect there is a bit of fear mongering with these forecasts.


for instance. 


Sunday morning the forecast for me in Pittsburgh was 8-12" Thursday into Friday. 

Sunday evening the forecast was for 5-9".

Monday morning the forecast was for 0.75" rain and then 3-5" snow

I survived the harsh cold winter (Friday night/Saturday morning) here in Florida. We will rebuild.

I saw you were down into the low 20s or near there. That had to be scary.

We contemplated community bonfires, where we roasted our family pets for food. I still don't know how we survived.

So at Work today we had 2 zoom meetings and they went out and bought me a laptop so I can work from home because Dallas might get 1-3” of snow and ice.

Total after the storm rolled through:

1.15" rain. 

MAYBE 0.2" ice

.75" snow (it's nearly done snowing so it may grow)
