The Weather Event...
OK, woke up to this Storm Warning from the Nationial Weather Service, and had to laugh. Someone has a sense of humour there. I particularly like in the first paragraph the phrase " Do not be fooled " What kind of weather serice warning says " Do not be fooled" ???????????? I expect a slightly sinister weather dude in a long black cape to come out at any moment with a dagger and an ominious voice....
And then in the second " will remain mostly a snow event" A snow event? Is that what we are having????? Will they be selling tickets????? Who's appearing? And why didn't I get the gig?
I will be staying in tonight for this event, not being fooled doing some writing by the fire. Kitty would love this. Malena? Not so much.....
Stay warm and safe where ever you are, and remember, Do Not Be Fooled. By anything.
Snowflakes and Weather,
A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST SUNDAY.
OVERNIGHT MUCH OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN MINNESOTA RECEIVED FREEZING RAIN... AND SLEET... RATHER THAN SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL. DO NOT BE FOOLED... THE HEAVY SNOW IS STILL EXPECTED TO ENGULF MUCH OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN MINNESOTA BY THIS EVENING. AREAS SOUTH OF A LINE FROM THE TWIN CITIES TO REDWOOD FALLS WILL CONTINUE TO SEE A PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET... DURING PART OF TODAY... BEFORE THE CHANGEOVER. STORM TOTALS OF 6 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW ARE EXPECTED BEFORE THE STORM TAPERS OFF SUNDAY AFTERNOON. HOWEVER... SOME AREAS COULD EASILY SEE TOTALS REACHING THE 14 TO 16 INCH RANGE.
OVER WEST CENTRAL WISCONSIN... WHERE SIGNIFICANT SNOW FELL OVERNIGHT... THE STORM WILL REMAIN MOSTLY A SNOW EVENT. AREAS JUST SOUTHEAST OF THE TWIN CITIES... LIKE RIVER FALLS AND DURAND... SHOULD ANTICIPATE A PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET DURING THE DAYLIGHT HOURS TODAY. STORM TOTALS WILL BE GENERALLY IN THE 8 TO 14 INCH RANGE... BUT SOME AREAS COULD SEE CONSIDERABLY MORE THAN THIS.
