Briefly Warmer Today Before Snizzle & Icy Roads Return
Our WLFI snowman is in jeopardy with most of our snow melting away today. Notice Adam Hall our videographer set up a snow television for our station snowman so he could watch his favorite channel and his one and only local television channel, News Channel 18. I am not on his good list after forecasting highs in the lower 40s today. It is too bad I could not find a train he could catch to the North Pole because by later today he may be all but gone. I will make sure to wrap him in ice cubes when I get to work later today. But he is made of December snow which we all know comes back to life when we get our next snow. Maybe I have been watching a few too many Christmas shows with my kids, but I still love them and there is no place I would rather be than with my kids by the Christmas tree watching holiday movies while eating popcorn. I absolutely love it! I may have to make up a nice bedtime story for my little Lauren about our WLFI snowman.
Tonight you may want to stay curled up under a blanket watching those timeless holiday classics because we have another coating of snow on the way or should I say snizzle or slush that will turn to ice. The snizzle is a snow and rain or drizzle combination so I gave it the name snizzle. I need to get the copyright on it! So our WLFI snowman will likely come back as the iceman and he will be the coolest dude in Lafayette. I will have to find him some shades. I will also have the latest on when you can expect all snow and when those icy roads will return make sure to check back. Notice I only have us in the half-inch range for accumulation tonight so iceman may be a little shorter, but that is okay. The big thing I am worried about is how just a little bit of measurable snow can cause huge problems on the roadways and the fact that wind chills may not be far from zero by tomorrow morning. Stay warm and safe!
