Good Morning! Happy Sledding!

What a sight to wake up to! I am getting the kids sleds down out of the attic and JUST PLAIN GOING NUTS! I AM TRYING NOT TO WAKE UP THE NEIGHBORS! OH YES, THE GOLDEN SNOW SHOVEL CONTEST WINNER REAPS THE REWARDS TODAY. I am shouting and preparing the golden shovel.
Quick note for Florida readers: Be on guard for tornadoes today.

Snowfall totals so far as of 7 a.m.

Attica 2.5"
Lafayette 1.6"
Delphi 1.5"
Kokomo 1.5"
Frankfort 1"

We wiill keep updating these for you through the day.

Please send in pictures and snow totals and I will check back. I have some measuring to do! Congratulations snow geese!

Forecast update as of 8:15 a.m.

Look for another 1 inch of snow for Howard, Cass, Miami, and Fulton Counties between now and 10 a.m. before we are all dry slotted. This break in the snow will allow our roads to improve during the afternoon hours and temperatures are expected to be near 34 degrees which will help to melt some of those icy spots. But still be careful out there. I ran into quite a few slick spots this morning.

Snowfall in most areas will be in the 1 to 3 inch range by late morning but we are not done with the snow yet. Another batch of snow is on the way tonight. You can expect another 1 to 2 inches of snow with blowing and drifting snow. The snow tonight will be a fluffier snow with colder temperatures expected causing it to blow around. Total snowfall in most areas will be from 2 to 4 inches before all is said and done on Monday afternoon. There will be a couple spots at 5 inches mainly north and east of Tippecanoe County. Watch for blowing and drifting snow tonight and Monday. Be careful on the roads....please, so we can all enjoy this beautiful winter wonderland.

I woke up not knowing for sure that there would already be snow and its beautiful in the trees. I saw big chunks coming down then it stoped.
