Waiting for snow...

So, on Friday, the city ground to a halt because we were expecting a massive winter storm.

I made the executive decision that we would take the day off and not deal with driving out to a small job we're trying to finish up before our big job gears up because the small job was in the far far northeast and they were already getting snow and the road to the job is notorious for icing over at the drop of a hat. However that's all the snow that was to be seen in town and it stayed to warm for ice. My house saw a few flakes, and mostly just rained.

A far cry from 4-6 inches were were being threatened with. Saturday was a bit cloudy, but basically dry and today has been sunny and nice (albeit cool) with hardly a cloud in sight.

However, that storm we were expecting on Friday is apparently still coming this way, just very very very slowly.

Now it's projected to roll into town tonight and sit around most of the week.

I'll believe it when I see it (but I'm kind of hoping they're right ;)
