Hello, December!


Here's what our Weather Advisory says: (I got it from the Weather Channel's website, www.weather.com.

/O.EXA.KIWX.WS.W.0002.000000T0000Z- 061201T2300Z/ HILLSDALE- INCLUDING THE CITY OF...HILLSDALE 631 AM EST FRI DEC 1 2006

...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM EST THIS AFTERNOON...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN NORTHERN INDIANA HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM EST THIS AFTERNOON.

RAIN HAS CHANGED TO FREEZING RAIN AS TEMPERATURES HAVE FALLEN TO NEAR AND JUST BELOW FREEZING. ICE ACCUMULATION OF ONE QUARTER INCH IS EXPECTED. THE FREEZING RAIN WILL ALSO MIX WITH SLEET...THEN CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW BY LATE MORNING. SNOW ACCUMULATION OF 1 TO 3 INCHES IS ALSO POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON.

IN ADDITION TO THE FREEZING RAIN AND SNOW...STRONG WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 40 MPH ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. THIS WILL BRING DOWN TREES AND POWER LINES THAT HAVE ACCUMULATED ICE.

A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW... SLEET... AND ICE ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. THE COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS AND MIXED PRECIPITATION WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS. CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE AS THE MORNING PROGRESSES.

Hi.
Sorry didn't comment earlier, Friday is my Bessie day.
We've been doing projects all day.
Only sporadically online.
We got freezing rain/ice last night.
Snow today that didn't stick to the streets. They said 4" by 6pm.
NOT.
It's 6pm now, and just flurries.
The Christmas Parade goes on as planned! Ho frickin' Ho!

ps: you will LOVE Jazper!
