I'd say I was off on my snowfall predictions. This morning's storm came through pretty fast and furious. Shortly after sunrise the snow came down in small, light flakes. But the intensity of the snowfall caused very quick accumulation. When all was said and done, the look out my back window looks like this:
Schools let out early and snow emergencies went up all around us except including us. When all was said and done around 1pm, our final accumulations looked like this:
In the end we got 2.5" here in Canal Winchester. Blowing away my prediction of one inch, that's for sure.
This storm will be it for us for a while and we're going to start a gradual warming trend in to the 50's. This will put our final January snowfall at 3". Surprisingly this is the least snowfall in January we've recieved since I started keeping record in January 2010.
