The White Album

Current weather models for this week are either crazyawesome or horribly depressing, depending on your taste for snow. I’ll let this image speak for itself (click to enlarge):

Now these models aren’t perfect so who knows how much moisture we’ll get. Sometimes they’re dead on while other times they’re laughably inaccurate. Time will tell.

Regardless, you’re better off preparing yourself now. And a special request, if I may: please check up on your special needs neighbors now so you know how you can help them should we actually wind up with a foot of snow on Thursday. Helping clear sidewalks and driveways is great, of course. There are other matters you may be able to help with as well. Does the storm interfere with their weekly shopping trip? Do they need special help if power should go out? Many of you probably already know the answers to those questions from winters past. It doesn’t hurt to double check.

You folks know me by now. I would love to see a foot (or more!) of snow this week. My shovel is ready and waiting—no sissy snowblowers for this guy. I feel bad for The Missus, though; she’s supposed to fly out of Omaha on Friday to go visit her sister. We may not be able to get out of our neighborhood by then. Oh well. At least Nature is throwing a fluffy blanket at us rather than a giant flaming space rock.

It will probably be some flurries amounting to 3-4 inches. I’m not too worried.

There are some things the power of positive thinking cannot prevent, Mr. T.

You forget I am from Minnesota. Even if we do get 8-10 inches, that’s still a dusting in my book. I’m more concerned that there will be idiot drivers out there cruising around like its summer time and endangering the safety of others (as usual in Lincoln).
