2011/039: Bonus – Snow Art

Maybe we will have another snow day tomorrow?

From the National Weather Service:
“The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and sleet … which is in effect from midnight tonight to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Precipitation will begin as rain in northwest parts of North Texas early Wednesday morning … continuing to overspread North Texas. As temperatures fall to below freezing Wednesday morning … the precipitation will transition to a freezing rain and sleet mixture before changing to all snow by early afternoon.
Total sleet and snow accumulations are expected to range from one to three inches. In addition … a few hundredths of an inch of freezing rain could coat roads and exposed objects before the precipitation transitions to sleet and snow by mid morning.
All wintry precipitation is expected to taper off during the afternoon. Snow flurries may persist into the evening hours in eastern counties. A winter storm warning means significant amounts of snow … sleet … and ice are expected or occurring. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.”
And, yes, it’ll be bitterly cold again. The weather service says wind chills will reach near zero in some parts of North Texas from Wednesday evening until sunrise on Thursday.
The Weather Channel’s forecast has the area warming to 36 degrees on Thursday, 47 on Friday and sunny and 50s for the weekend.

    Cute! I think the national government is going to have to get involved in pardoning the making up of snow days. It’s epidemic!

    so funny that a winter storm warning is 1 to 3 inches, lol.

    • It HAS to be a winter storm warning, considering they don’t know what to do with the roads here, when there’s snow and/or ice! They have this “meltdown 20”, which is a mix of sand and some kind of chemical to melt the ice (can’t remember what it’s called), but IMO it doesn’t help that much, and they certainly don’t get to all the streets.
      Last week we were only supposed to get about an inch of snow, and we ended up with SIX!!

    Stay warm, guys! Our temps are taking a nose-dive as well and the winds are picking up.

    I really, really hate winter!

    I can’t believe how much snow the South has been getting this year. Must be very hard on folks not used to it.
