Blizzard

Yes you heard me correctly, blizzard warning here in West Texas *sigh* but it'll be back up in the 70s Sunday..yay lol! Hopefully being snowed in will give me some good time to get some work done (and maybe clean....maybe). Here's our warning:

AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS WINTER STORM IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE PANHANDLES REGION BEGINNING LATE TONIGHT. COLD TEMPERATURES WILL RETURN TO THE PANHANDLES TONIGHT... WITH PRECIPITATION BEGINNING AS LIGHT RAIN BEFORE SWITCHING TO SNOW OVERNIGHT TONIGHT. BY EARLY FRIDAY MORNING HEAVY SNOW AND VERY STRONG WINDS WILL BE AFFECTING A LARGE PORTION OF THE AREA. NORTHERLY WINDS OF 35 TO 40 MPH WITH GUSTS OVER 50 MPH WILL CAUSE WIDESPREAD BLOWING SNOW WITH NEAR ZERO VISIBILITY IN WHITEOUT CONDITIONS FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. HEAVY SNOWFALL OF 6 TO 12 INCHES IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE WARNING AREA WITH AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 12 INCHES COMMON. SNOW DRIFTS OF 10 TO 20 FEET WILL BE POSSIBLE BEFORE THE SNOW FINALLY ENDS SATURDAY MORNING. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STORM. ANYONE CAUGHT OUTSIDE DURING WHITEOUT CONDITIONS COULD BECOME DISORIENTED AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO FIND SHELTER. TRAVEL WILL BE DANGEROUS IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE ON FRIDAY... WITH POWER OUTAGES POSSIBLY LASTING INTO THE WEEKEND.

Never been in a blizzard before...will post pictures if I can get any that aren't just solid white =)
