Winter Storm in Kendallville – AGAIN

February 25th, 2016 ·No Comments

I am not  referring to  yesterday.  Yesterday we had snow and I wrote about it. I also had a fender bender in a parking lot and my son had a flat tire. I thought today I would be writing about those two things. No, not yet – not after this morning’s trip to take my grandson to work.

The Snow Grinch came again last night and prompted this, which I did read until I finally got inside after being sideways across my driveway for ten minutes.

… WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM EST /3 PM CST/ THIS AFTERNOON…

HAZARDOUS WEATHER…

* LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOW WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE MORNING AND TAPER OFF BY THE AFTERNOON.

* ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES.

* NORTHWEST WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WILL CAUSE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES… ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AREAS.

IMPACTS…

* TRAVEL WILL CONTINUE TO BE HAZARDOUS TODAY… ESPECIALLY DURING THE MORNING COMMUTE.

* SCATTERED TREE AND POWER LINE DAMAGE IS POSSIBLE DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF HEAVY… WET SNOW AND STRONG WINDS.

* THIS SNOW IS VERY WET AND HEAVY. THIS MAY LEAD TO HEALTH ISSUES WHEN SHOVELING. IF YOU HAVE HEALTH PROBLEMS OR ARE ELDERLY… YOU SHOULD NOT SHOVEL THIS SNOW.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR HEAVY SNOW MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW ARE FORECAST THAT WILL MAKE TRAVEL DANGEROUS. ONLY TRAVEL IN AN EMERGENCY. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL… KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT… FOOD… AND WATER IN YOUR VEHICLE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

Halfway to my destination, the wipers froze on my windshield, either that or they were immobilized by gops of marshmallow like snow that were coming down.

And the day is only beginning.
