Merry weekend before Christmas. You have 4 days to get your gifts bought, and only another 30 hours or so to do your on-line shopping and checkout with 2-day air shipping ! Slackers! (OK, I did most of my on-line stuff on Monday and it will be here tomorrow. Was even thinking about having them wrap it too... yes I know I am lazy!
Today is the first official day of winter, and the snow is beginning to fall. I love this date as we usually have some real winter weather and building the white Christmas, and more importantly it is teh shortest day of the year, which means that each day we are now gaining some of the all important daylight back! Going to work and coming home in the dark is so depressing this time of year, so I always look forward to some of that daily sun (when the snow is not falling!)
So onto the big headline, the 'storm' Well this morning it looks to be tracking much farther SOuth then the models showed last week, which means it is pulling teh precip farther to mid-michigan. OUr 4-5" forecast was dropped to 1-3" on most sites today, with the one I still think is the best showing a solid 4" for Iggy, but tapering off fairly quick going North, so Trout Lake may only get 1". The Storm tatal should be a sold 3" across our trails for the time being though. Next week is shaping up to be colder then normal, which means the Lake Effect will be gearing up on several days, with X-mas giving us another 1-2" shot from Santa.
My chosen forecast is below:
Stay tuned and I will get you updated as I gather more info.
