i realize my definition of storms, precipitation and catastrophies pales compared to the weather many on this forum have. but we're in the midst of a "blizzard", Thank God. so far we have about seven inches of snow. that's just a "sciff" in the opinion of many on this forum. the last storm of this "magnitude" was over a year ago. since then we've barely ACCUMULATED seven inches of water in any form. damned glad to see it. i hope it shuts down the entire state. if we drain all the energy from this storm system it would do us all a favor. we would get the water we need and you folks could get some well-needed recuperation.
