We've got a significant storm starting in the morning tomorrow and depending where you happen to be situated, it could drop nearly a foot of snow, with a mix of ice pellets and some freezing rain in the evening/overnight into Wednesday.

The trifecta of bad weather I'm hoping to miss next year. I'm not going anywhere tomorrow.

Kinda makes the rain sound better.

I'm trying to decide if I want to go out or gamble on a better day. If we weren't running low on milk and eggs it would be an easy choice.

Well, the storm just arrived a bit ago. Looking at radar, it stretches as far south as Mexico.

Although it looks bad for us, to me, it looks like your area is going to get a lot of rain, and New York is going to get slammed with snow and freezing rain.

After about 4 inches of snow, we're now getting pounded with ice pellets and strong winds.

An inch per hour is a pretty good snowfall.

It looks like the worst of the rain missed us. Lexington is not actually in the valley. We sit on a plateau. Our house is very close to 64 / 75 crossroads. I imagine north and west of us is getting the bulk of the rain.

It is a rather depressing looking day.

Stay safe and I hope the boss got to stay home also.

It's blowing around so much, it's hard to tell what the actual accumulation is now. I could tell earlier when the neighbour's kid was shovelling their side of the property next door. As of now, it's difficult to tell what was shovelled and what wasn't.

Yup, the boss is home, safe and sound. The "older" of the juniors, is interviewing for a summer position and still out there.

Glad the big rain missed you guys. It's gotta soak into the ground and can't do that very well when its' cold, and continuously raining.

HTML isn't used to snow - or much of it.

Looks like the worst of it is over for you ScriptMan. I can't see clouds on my phone app, but it doesn't look like there much rain going on there.

I saw news cast video on the weather channel last night of a palm tree, and blowing snow in Las Vegas yesterday or the day before (not sure which).

Someone on in a local news station there mentioned that there was a snow event in Vegas two years ago, where two inches of snow fell. He said the city was shut down for two days. I'm not sure if he was kidding or not, but sheesh, even if it was for one day that's crazy.

Pretty day here today, not warm but pretty.

I was in Vegas one time when they had heavy rain and it brought things to a standstill for a few hours. Apparently at that time they had very insufficient storm drains. I would bet they don't have snow removal equipment.

I'm not a betting person, but in this case only, I'd take that bet too!

I guess that makes me a "betting person".

Add: Who would think the desert needs better storm drains.

If you pave it, you need to drain it.

Understood, but with an annual average of 4" of rain, their current storm drainage system must be crap. I understand it's the desert, but I guess when it does rain, it must come down in buckets. We get between 35 to 40 inches of rain.

In the sixties and seventies we use to get quite a bit of snow.

Now it is more of a concern about people not having snow tires or not use to driving in the snow.

The snow we get here is different from what you guys get East of the Rockies.

There are still some people here, that refuse to acknowledge that snow tires are better than the "all season" brands. You can see those people spinning out on snow covered roads.

BTW - if there happens to be a stretch of good weather between snowfalls here, when it eventually does snow, people somehow have forgotten how to drive safely. If it snows every second or third day, they seem to somewhat remember to slow down.

Just my personal opinion; a snow tire without studs is no better than an all season.

Any combination of the above is deadly with a dumb-butt driving. That is the major reason I stay home with snow. I don't wish to die with some idiot trying to text and drive.

I've driven with both all seasons and snows. Snows do grip better when taking off, and stopping. Turning I'd have to say snows are still better than all seasons, but not by a large margin.

I'm driving on Micheline X-ice which are not an "aggressive" tread, not the best for deep snow, but are better on slippery surfaces. They run pretty quite too.

The snows on my other car, I can't remember the make. They're not as expensive as the X-ice, are more of an aggressive tread (for deep snow) and are pretty noisy.

The whole point of the snows tires, beyond driving in snow and slush, are that they are also better on dry surfaces when the temp is at or below 7C. They're softer and grip better than all seasons at those temps.

Idiots on the road - yep, they're everywhere.

So how much snow did you wind up getting?

We may get a heavy dusting overnight.
