11am Winter Storm Update

17 hours in to the storm... Another 20 hours to go.

Did you hear all the sleet coming down last night? It almost made it hard to sleep!

Power outages are being reported all across Southeast Missouri and Western Kentucky this morning.

Just checked some of the morning computer model data... Yuck! It looks like the sleet will continue for the next couple of hours. Eventually around 2pm or 3pm we should see a change over from sleet to freezing rain. Then we stay freezing rain through 11pm. Then a change over from freezing rain to snow around midnight. With perhaps 4"-6" of snow overnight.That is all for the "Cape Girardeau-ish Area".

After 6 hours of sleep, I am ready to go at it again...

well its still comming down in murphysboro Yuck what a mess. Hope everyone is safe and warm.

Well, the news could be better (to say the least.) I'm thinking it would be a good idea to take advantage of power while we still have it. Hot meal, warm shower, TV till my brain is numb...I'll try to dream of these things as I listen to trees cracking all night under the weight of 8 or 9 hours of freezing rain, topped off with several inches of heavy snow.

Ahhh, such is life....(how long till spring??)
