    @nWo, I am good with the 3-5 inches in the Louisville area. I have all errands completed and don’t have to go anywhere this weekend. @Run To State will be shocked, but...bring on the snow! (But keep away the frigid cold, please and thank you!)

    So winter is coming!!!

    It had begun.

    Started in NKY around 0200. Bad in spots, 275 is covered, but 75 was fine.

    Those in the Cincinnati/NKY area will get a second round of snow on Sunday.

    Thanks, looks like now Cleveland will get around 2" of snow before it ends. The snowfield has moved a little more northward.

    I used to think like that. Sometimes waiting will get you into a difficult situation. That's what happened to me in 2009 when the ice storm hit Richmond. My wife had surgery that day and I didn't pay attention to the weather. We lost power 30 minutes after we got home. It was out for six days. I had to scramble and try to find some kind of heat source and I wasn't able to get something. So I had to get a hotel room then we came home and for a couple of days we had no heat before we got power restored. I swore that would never happen to me again. I couldn't even find a kerosene heater in Kentucky or surrounding states. I finally got one out of Atlanta because that was where my daughter was living at the time. It was the very last one they had. I swore to myself I would never get caught like that again. So that started me on the journey to learn more and more about the weather.

    I know have two kerosene heaters and installed more insulation than needed in our attic. I always make sure we stock up with essentials a few days before any weather event. It may be overreach but I would much rather be safe than sorry.

    I was speaking to the idea of wanting to know exactly how much “weather” you’re going to get several days out. Obviously, it’s good to be aware of an approaching system, but putting any stock into predictions more than 24 hours out is a waste of time, IMO. That’s plenty of time to prepare.

    Crews have already stopped salting in Louisville. Main roads are just wet, some side roads still have some slush.

    Another disappointing winter weather event. We just simply don't get decent snow storms in NKY anymore. Just warm, wet, muddy winters.
