THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN JUNEAU HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING...WHICH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM AST (Alaska Standard Time) MONDAY.

SNOW WILL INCREASE THIS EVENING AND BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES LATE TONIGHT AND MONDAY. STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATION OF 1 TO 2 FEET IS EXPECTED OVER THE NORTH-CENTRAL INNER CHANNELS THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY.

LOCALLY WINDY CONDITIONS CAN ALSO BE EXPECTED WITH GUSTS 40 TO 45 MPH CAUSING BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW REDUCING VISIBILITIES DOWN TO A 1/2 MILE AT TIMES.

So far, since it started at 5:30, we've had a good eight inches and the roads are, once again, impassable. Will I go in tomorrow? Who knows -- if the road is cleared, I may go in for long enough to get things at the office so I can work from home. We will have to wait and see. Meanwhile, we had one and a half days between storms.

Stay warm.

(And if all the idiots could stop going "Ha ha! All this snow sure does prove Al Gore is a doodyhead!" I'd appreciate it. Global warming results in more volatile weather, which includes more storms. And that includes more *snow*storms.)

we though we were out of the woods here in NJ but mother nature had her own plans. yesterday's windchill was minus 18 and for us in the midatlantic, that is quite a shock.

It's snowing now as i type and i am bummed because i am hosting a bookclub tonite ("A long way gone" by former child soldier Ishmael Beah who fought in the blood diamonds mess in Sierra Leone) and i fear no one will show in this weather.

at least it's not Alaska, huh granny?
