    They are in a panic down here asking if school is going to be canceled.

    Forecasting Snow Flurries and a low of 28!!! Black ice warnings running across the TV screen.

    A high of 51 on Thursday and 61 on Friday.

    No chance for the flurries to stick around long enough to get the store shelves cleared of bread, milk and water.

    When I was in Biloxi, Mississippi in 72 (Tech School) they had snow one day for the first time in something like a decade. Suffice it to say the Biloxi drivers were not accustomed to driving in snow conditions. Lots of fender benders.

    Pleased to report there's no snow here at th' hovel. Prognosticators claim it may get to 59°F as the high today. Looking at all the ugliness in th' higher latitudes, this ain't horrible.
