    I think we snow hounds STILL need to do the snow dance……as is right now, I am afraid we are going to see ice/sleet…… I know we’d all rather have snow!!!!

    I too much rather have all snow then this sleet/freezing rain. That stuff was horrible even tho it didnt last to long. I’m wondering if this system might yet continue to wobble southward what the impact may be. Chad thanks again for the update. I went out and bought me a new ruler so that I can actually go out and get measurements this round. Don’t know what happened to my other one. But I’m ready this time aroud. Everyone stay safe and warm.

  18. Monster says:

    Chad not sure I understand. You have said every update this thing keeps moving sout but the forcast has yet to change. So im not sure I fallow because all models that I have watched haven’t moved at all.

  19. Monster says:

    Madmad looks like they are going to pull our wsw. This thing looks to stay well north of us.

  20. Autumn says:

    I love it Joey!

  21. Duane C says:

    I just looked at maps. I don’t like whiners, but am going turn into one myself. Western states and Northwest of us will get frozen precipitation. Northeast Indiana is going to get it too. We (Lafayaette Area) will see very little accumulation of anything but rain. I guess if I can’t beat them then I will join them… “Bring on Spring!”

  22. A.BELL says:

    BRING ON THE SNOW!!!! This Benton Co Family is READY!!! Joey I think your son is correct!!… ;/

  23. Anna says:

  25. Duane C says:
