That’s right folks, more winter weather is on the way. I thought that we were going to be able to dodge the snow bullet this week, but alas, the weather service has changed their minds. Apparently no one is safe from this one either. At first, the winter storm warning was for the counties north of us, but it looks like today at noon, the weather models reached a tipping point. I didn’t know storms could explode, but I guess we’ll see.
So, have you had enough yet? If not, why? I think this week we’re going to have a Top 3 Tuesday…
