Storm predictions are nothing if not unpredictable. Last Saturday was to be no more than 2 inches but I measured 7. Last night had the potential for 6 - 10 and was but a dusting around here.
When storms pack a wallop, though, the impact on our lives can be staggering (I remember the Blizzard of '78 but there were others in our past.) Check out our display on Blizzards in U.S. history and be very respectful of this force of nature.
