The original forecast was for as much as 9" in this part of the state, but that now seems to be dialed back to 3" or so.
How bad things get for travel will depend upon how long the sleet or freezing rain lasts.
There is nothing nastier than an ice storm and we do get them here, although I recall them being quite rare when I lived in a suburb on the shore of the lake.

rain, then sleet, then ice, then snow 6".

Not a good day to be going out tomorrow.


Whereas "cold" is a lame excuse to stay home, this would be a great reason to stay home. Injury, possibly even death, and property damage are real risk in situations like these.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

The news said that frito chips sell out here before bad weather since people make frito chili pies when stuck at home.

Not sure if I believe it but I guess that's a thing now.

They originally said we were going to get a ton of rain followed by about 8 inches of snow over Friday and Saturday. We're currently getting the rain and it's about 52 degrees, but they've scaled back the amount of snow and now they say we're probably only going to get about an inch or less. There is going to be a period of freezing rain tomorrow afternoon when the temperatures drop drastically though, and then we're back into the deep freeze again on the weekend. I'm dying to take my Corvette out for a drive but that's not likely to happen this week frown

Forecast varies but maybe up to 8" w/ ice laid down first to put a slick foundation under it all.
