Akron Blizzard

From my mom..."Snow is the deepest we have ever seen it. We had to have the driveway plowed. Everything is shut down. We are toasty and warm. Dad had to shovel behind the car outside the garage so we can get out if we need to, but he took it in little time periods and then came in and rested. He feels fine. He is wise about that! Just thought you would like to know what it is like at our house. The snow is half way up the window by the computer on the porch boxes."

Anybody jealous?

And from the weather professionals to Akronyms: "Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 4 am EDT Sunday... Snow... heavy at times... will taper off from west to east across the area tonight. By the time the snow tapers off... total snow accumulations should range from 12 to 18 inches across much of the area. Gusty northwest winds between 20 and 30 mph will begin to diminish this evening. Until then expect to find considerable blowing and drifting of the snow causing near blizzard conditions at times. Roads that have not been plowed... and roads exposed to drifting snow will likely be impassible this evening. Local travel restrictions may be in place."
