Waitin' On The Storm....

A bit of rain, followed by some snow overnight....all in preparations for the big event that is supposed to arrive by early afternoon....but despite the dire warnings from the "Global Warming Is Our God" folks at NBC owned The Weather Channel, I have a feeling, whether we get 3 inches or 10, this storm is not going to amount to anything more than a day of schools cancelled and a few other minor conveniences...March storms, for the most part, seldom do.  They are usually not followed by bitter cold, like January storms, and the snow usually doesn't stick around long...it looks like temperatures will approach 40 by Friday with upper 40s by Saturday, which should melt most of it off the streets at least.

I've seen some big snows in my 64 years, and I am just not convinced that this one is going to last long, or have much of an effect.  The last big March snow I can remember, I missed out on, back in March 2008, some five years ago....Sam and I were taking what would be my last RV run...we got to Nappanee and were in western Illinois before the storm roared by us to the east and north.  Celina ended up getting a foot or so, but it didn't last...by the time we returned to the Midwest from our run to New Mexico and So Cal 5 days later, the snow had mostly melted...such is the way of March storms in the Heartland.

So hopefully this storm will be long gone, and cause no travel problems for the 50 or so of us who will be attending the Mini Reunion at Dayton and Wright-Patterson on Friday through the weekend.  The storm is slated to arrive here around 2pm, and should be over within 15 hours....they say it will be wet, and the wind should not be a major drifting factor....hopefully the snow blowers will not be needed, but if they are, I and they are ready to go...and if it amounts to anything worthwhile, I will have plenty of photos.
