As we approach midday, I note that less than one inch of snow has fallen in our part of central New Jersey and, currently, it is not snowing at all.
I would call that good news, were it not for the fact that it is pretty much exactly what the weather service is telling us would happen….before we get nailed with 18″ – 24″ yet to come.
God I hope they\’re wrong.
UPDATE: The temperature has dropped at least five degrees in the past half hour, the wind has kicked up significantly, and suddenly there is a driving snow: tiny flakes that aren\’t floating around, but going straight down to the ground…the fastest-accumulating kind.
I had hoped the forecast might be wrong. But it looks more and more like the real deal.
