|4:06 p.m. -- starting to snow hard|
The more the forecasters keep forecasting, the higher the snow totals keep going in these parts.
When we started our day today in Omaha, we were expecting a winter storm. Maybe 6 inches of snow.
Sometime along the way, that turned into a blizzard warning, and now we might get up to 10 inches of hard-blowing snow which, come to think of it, sounds a little kinky the way I just put it. A little more than an hour ago, it was just raining.
Now it's not.
Good thing I'm an artiste with a snow shovel, which is a skill not every -- OK, almost no -- Louisiana boy possesses. Perhaps I'm a real Midwesterner now, after 24 years.
By the way, in the Gret Stet, what we know in Nebraska as a "blizzard warning" is commonly referred to as "instant frozen death." Not an understated lot, those Louisiana folk.
