Cellphone pictures just don’t do justice. Spectacular dawn this morning.

Snow? Sleet? Freezing Rain? Rain?

The forecasts for today (1/25/2011) thru tomorrow night (1/26/2011) have been (pardon the pun) all over the map. Listening to the weather radio while getting ready for work, the first Winter Storm Watches for this pending mess were issued. The latest forecast discussion from the RNK NWS has “… will likely result in significant wintry precipitation later tonight and wednesday”. They also note the models have slowed down the timing until tomorrow, with only light precipitation of some sort later today/tonight into tomorrow morning. (I see that the local news outlets are tweeting “bread/milk” alerts too.)

It’s interesting to read the discussions and blogs ahead of this mess. For those of you that are interested or like to follow along, here are some links:

The Drive Home

Driving down Route 311 on our way home from bowling tonight. Intermittent snow showers, but nothing like places to the west and north have gotten/will be getting.

First Snowfall of 2010-11

It’s December 4th, and we have the first actual snowfall of the season. We’ve had a few flurries here and there before this. Really pretty snowfall, a little different each time you look. Big fat flakes. Small flakes. Flurries. Rain-like. Quiet. Beautiful.
