Is this the storm that will beat the one your parents always told you about? The 1971 Blizzard always finds its way into every conversation. So far, for mid-December, we have done pretty well at being safe. I think our luck might be over how the media scares everyone. All the storm models are projecting Armageddon. I already stocked up on toilet paper and milk, bread, and peanut butter. I don’t mind the snow at all. The cold temperatures are what gets to me and my bones.
I hope my snow blower is ready. It’s one of those 1970’s Toro beasts. I have always tried to keep her all tuned up and ready to go in case of snow. My neighbors are always happy when the beast is clearing their driveways.
On Friday, rain changing to snow early with cold and windy weather is expected. Temperatures tumble through the 30s and settle in the 20s with winds 40 to 50mph at times. We could see a couple of inches of snow throughout the day. I wonder if any of the betting sites have a line on how much snow we will get. I will bet the under and clean up money-wise. The Lions will play the Carolina Panthers away at Bank of America outdoor stadium. Cloudy, high of 31, wind chill 6 on Christmas Eve is that forecast. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens in the next few days. Thank goodness you have the radio and WRIF. Good luck on Christmas shopping- we are all counting on you.
