School was called off at 11:30 yesterday morning and staff was released at 12:30. The roads were clear but the visibility was such that everyone was driving at 35 mph. We ended up with three inches of the white fluffy stuff... but the roads were still clear.
It started snowing today about 10:30 and is coming down quite heavily... by noon, the road out front was covered.
We even have icicles!
Ice (sleet/freezing rain) will be moving in behind the snow with predictions of up to three-quarters of an inch of ice.
I live above the "A" in Fayetteville.
Just got the Emergency Communications call from the town... we are in a "state of emergency" until further notice. A Red Cross shelter will be opening at 2:00pm at a local school.
Me... I've charged my cell phone and won't be going anywhere. Candles are handy with matches nearby. Lots of blankets and quilts to keep warm... gonna be interesting...
