Wind out of the northeast at around 15 miles per hour, barometer dropping rapidly and the temperature only 13 Fahrenheit. I think it is going to snow. On radar it is snowing here now but it is not reaching the ground.
The forecast is for 4 to 8 inches of snow today and tonight. After a nearly snowless winter it will be a big treat to have a little on the ground. If you would like to see the storms progress you can see it on radar at http://www.intellicast.com/IcastPage/LoadPage.aspx?loc=kbgr&seg=LocalWea...
We woke up this morning to a dusting of snow and a temperature near zero. Fortunately there is little wind to make it feel colder. The sunrise was obscured through the clouds that form over the warm ocean water when it is cold. The forecast is for a real snowstorm over the weekend so just maybe winter is going to make an appearance this year.
The dogs spent the night in the house where it is warmer than the kennel and are still inside enjoying the luxury of laying on the tile floor by the wood stove. Eventually they get too hot and move away but for now they are both close.
Last evening the Union Area Chamber of Commerce put on a business technology workshop. It was a fun event held at Hannibal’s Café on the common. It seemed like everyone had a great time and most likely learned something. At this point in the winter it is nice to have a chance to get out and see everyone. Good food, pleasant crowd and excellent presenters.
