don't let it snow!

by my house, it snowed maybe an inch or so overnight. but up here in carmel by my workplace, it hasn't snowed at all (yet). during my last break, i was talking to someone who lives on the west side (where the airport is) & she said it had barely snowed over there also.

ah, those fickle weather reports... yesterday estimates were that we'd get as much as 4 to 8 inches of snow during the day today. but as of this morning, it looks like now most of that snow won't hit until this evening. here's what the national weather service has to say as of right now (last updated at 8am est):

Today: Periods of snow. High around 24. North northwest wind between 10 and 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

Tonight: Periods of snow with widespread blowing snow. Low around 17. Wind chill values between zero and 8. Blustery, with a north northeast wind between 16 and 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 7 inches possible.

1 to 2 inches isn't much at all. we were a bit worried about the drive to the airport, but with only 1-2in possible (& a 20% chance it won't snow again at all), the drive will be as easy as falling off a frozen log. i'm still a bit concerned about de-icing the plane, though.

this is likely to be my final blog entry before i leave. i'll still have computer access while in san francisco, so i'll be reachable by email & could possibly post while i'm there, but i might not get around to it.

to those of you who're still stuck in the winter wonderland, have a good holiday, and bundle up warmly! it's gonna be colder than a witch's tit out here (in indy the temp is supposed to drop below zero on xmas morn). & to connie and all you san franciscans: i'll see you soon!
