11:25pm Winter Storm Update

I just gave a call over to the National Weather Service office in Paducah to see if they have gotten any reports of snow, especially in Southern Illinois. They said that they had recently received a report of 0.7" of snow in Mt. Vernon, IL.

The reason I asked is that several of the airport observation sites (all automated) have been reporting snow, but I hadn't heard of many reports of snow.

Hmm... Guess there is. :)

I don't know about you, but I am getting tired. I've been "playing" with this storm since 6am!!! Usually, I'm all gung-ho to stay up all night with the storm, but I don't know if I'll be able to this time.
