Default MNers - Storm of the Century

Two days ago I made a bet that we'd get less than 6" from midnight friday to midnight sunday. My remark at the time: "I should make you give me odds, but I won't."

Should I be worried?

Is there a forecast that is calling for any less than 5 in that period? Cities, I assume. Yeah, I'd think you should be worried.

I've heard forecasts ranging anywhere from 6 to 18 inches.

Many weather-dorks are saying the heavy stuff starts Saturday into Sunday and are predicting the storm will "stall."

But it all depends on the temps. If they don't drop, it will be all rain.

From what I've seen, it looks like one of those deals where the cities will be right on the edge. We could get 16" and st cloud gets 2. Or we could get 2 and mankato gets 16".

How exactly are you measuring? If the snowfall goes into Monday, how are you going to know how much fell before midnight? The news probably just reports totals for the whole storm or for "overnight," etc. Are you just measuring in your yard and comparing the end depth to the start depth?

Yes, it could get ugly. A third party threw out "midnight friday to midnight sunday?" and we were like "sure." It may require emails to Sven Sungaard.

Canturbury was a gold mine yesterday. Lots of people who had been playing since Friday night who didn't want to dig their cars out.

I got stuck on my way home 50' from my garage. Took an hour to get out.
