    Temps here are expected to fall to about 32 behind the cold front with this storm and give me an 1 inch or 2 of snow.

    Here it comes ZAP! What do you do all your plowing with ZAP? Plow truck, UTV, tractor? The scenery was beautiful up your way today. Snow stuck to almost all of the trees. Very picturesque. I took the family up through your area around 11am and over that new bridge, very nice job they did, and up on to Tupper Lake. Stopped at The Lumberjack for a serious lunch and then on to The Wild Center. There was only about 20 people in the whole place so we were able to take our time, let the kids have fun, and we all really enjoyed it. Back home for 6pm.

    If snow was to develop here shortly i don't think i will get any. I was outside a bit ago and it is clearing off but getting colder.

    My kids love French toast. We eat them once a week. ;emOkay, I eat them every time they do. What? I cook them, then clean up. I need the energy.

    You guys are probably in as much mud as we are right now. The inside/outside cat is not amused. This is supposed to be hunting time for her.

    Neighbor's new cat isn't happy with the snow. Spent all last night and today trying to get into my house. Had to call around to see who it belonged to.

    The NOAA just issued this.

    ...EXTRA CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN TRAVELLING TONIGHT INTO TOMORROW...

    AS COLDER AIR MOVES IN...RAIN SHOWERS WILL CHANGE OVER TO SNOW SHOWERS
    THROUGH THE EVENING AND INTO TONIGHT...EVEN SOME ISOLATED PATCHES
    OF FREEZING DRIZZLE ARE POSSIBLE.

    AS TEMPERATURES DROP BELOW FREEZING...SIDEWALKS AND ROADWAYS THAT
    ARE WET...MAY FREEZE AND BECOME SLIPPERY. BRIDGES AND OTHER
    ELEVATED SURFACES TYPICALLY FREEZE FIRST.

    TRAVELERS SHOULD SLOW DOWN...ALLOWING EXTRA TIME TO REACH THEIR
    DESTINATIONS...AND LEAVE ADDITIONAL SPACE BETWEEN VEHICLES.
