Actually, atm, we are sleeted in. We are very near the line between ice/sleet and the prediction of 12-24 inches of snow. Our morning news said there were over 1000 closings reported.
This was about 1PM - this is not snow. It's all sleet with a little bit of ice under it. Now after 5PM we are starting to get some snow.
Illinois's and Missouri's governors called out the National Guard for this storm. So far, I don't think they've been utilized for any big rescues. I-70 is closed from west of St. Louis through much of mid-Missouri. WOW! That's the path of heavy snowfall and white out conditions, a bit northwest of us.
Everyone had plenty of notice for this storm so we're all stocked up and haven't even ventured outside today. Very happy that we still have electricity. To celebrate I mixed up some hot chocolate from this recipe. Yum!
