We're in the Red !!!

The weather service issued a blizzard watch for Tuesday and Wednesday. Forecasters said snowfall totals could reach up to 2 feet in some areas.  Heavy snowfall combined with high winds could create whiteout conditions, particularly on Tuesday night into Wednesday, making driving extremely dangerous in some areas. Snow drifts of 5 feet to 10 feet are possible.  "Conditions will rapidly deteriorate from north to south across the region Tuesday afternoon with travel likely becoming virtually impossible at times Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning," the weather service warned, adding that snow will be so heavy at times Tuesday night that plows will not be able to keep up. Once the storm has moved through, bitterly cold temperatures are expected to grip much of the region.

This isn't going to be very much fun ... hoping to get home tonight without any incident and then will bunker down and ride this out ... be safe everyone!

Well, I'm in Mass and they are telling us about two feet. Which wouldn't be so bad if we hadn't been getting at least that every single week since Christmas!
