The Groundhog Day Storm: A perfectly normal winter event!

It's not the end of the world but the biggest snow of this winter is heading our way. Forget the groundhog, he's not even going to play the shadow game on the 2nd of February-- snow will be too deep. Groundhogs will be in hibernation dreaming of glutttony in your garden come summer! Allthough it strained my lack of technology abilities, I finally attached the latest model of the Rapid Precision Mesoscale (posted Monday morning at 7 a.m.) as to what is likely to be on the ground by  sunset on Wednesday  The purple --that is us - may get between 12 and 16 inches of snow!  But before you whine about deep snow our brethren in the yellow may take a hit of 24-30 inches.  And note the use of the word "MAY", for when it comes to  Mother Nature's fickle ways, this prediction scale may be low or high. 
But anyway you look at it we will be in world of winter across Oakland County very, very soon.
My snowshoes are ready for a winter trek at Ortonville State Recreation Area! 
 And this is not the storm of the century.
This is winter.
Thunder and lightning with this wet heavy snow is also a possibility! Stay tuned.

Bring it on.......Just be slow with the snow shoveling to not strain yourself. This is winter and snow is normal. Hire someone to clear your walks as they need the money as much as you don't need a heart attack.
