Incoming! The thing I definitely most wanted to hear today is how we're going to get two more feet of snow:
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for the Chicago area, warning that a storm swooping in from the South could dump more than 18 inches of snow and pack winds up to 40 mph.

The weather service said the storm, expected to arrive Tuesday afternoon over much of northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana, could be "dangerous, multifaceted and potentially life-threatening."
Sounds great. Can't wait.

I'm most enthusiastic about the part where I live in the lake effect snow zone, thus guaranteeing the worst possible dumpage imaginable.
Conditions are expected to deteriorate from north to south across the region Tuesday afternoon with travel becoming "virtually impossible" at times Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning, according to the weather service. Plows will be unable to keep up with the downfall.

In anticipation of the storm hitting northwest Indiana, Indiana State Police late this morning canceled all days off Tuesday and Wednesday and scheduled all troopers for 12-hour shifts.
"Hello, 911? Um, yeah, can you please come arrest this fucking snow in my driveway?"

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to adopt a St. Bernard. Just in case.


In all seriousness, if you live in this area and have cash to spare, this would be a very good time to donate to your local homeless shelter. They are about to be overwhelmed.
