One of the weirdest and funniest quotes from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

How bad will this storm be? Duluth is under a Blizzard Warning starting tomorrow at 6 a.m. and going until 6 a.m. on Saturday!. They're talking about 15-18 inches in Duluth through tomorrow night, and aren't even predicting how much more will fall on Christmas Day.

On the bright side, it won't affect any high school hockey games. The flip side, of course, is it could snowbound many people on Christmas Eve and Day. People like my wife and me. Sad

We've been led along by several storms in the past few years which never materialized, but this one simply looks too big to miss us. Blech.

Here is the map showing what's in store for this area:

Gale warning for the lake. I thought that was funny. Is anyone planning on being on Lake Superior tomorrow or Friday?

I dunno. I'd prefer a nice blizzard to the incessant rain in Chicago right now. I've spent the past week or so just missing huge snowstorms.

I thought it was supposed to miss Duluth and north... a friend was supposed to drive to her family in Ely, and they're not supposed to be hit...I though she said south od Duluth would be hit...

It's been a blowing down 35E... Going to make my first day of shopping trickier than normal in the a.m.

Duluth is smack dab in the middle of an area expected to get 20+ inches of snow through Christmas Day.

Hunkering down with Kona Coffee and the TV this morning. Smile

This might change overnight, but the streets in Duluth were in pretty good driving condition this evening. Some freezing rain and a bit of sleet close to the lake made for a bit of slickness, but nothing preventing us from venturing cross-town.

For a Blizzard Warning, it's been tame so far.

There are two different weather scenarios being played out in Duluth this morning, depending on whether you live near the lake or up over the hill. Over the hill (at the "official" weather station at the Airport), they have 19 inches of snow with over a half foot more on the way.

Down here near the lake, we're getting more sleet and freezing rain than snow, with 40 mph winds off the lake. Wheeeeee!

Today's plan is simple; hunker down, drink Kona coffee, eat leftovers from last night. After a couple phone calls, our Christmas Day get together has been postponed to Sunday.

Up in Hibbing we only got about 6 inches but it is extremely heavy and nearly impossible to shovel.

Wow!!! Lee, is that the heavy stuff, too??? Yeah, it's such a wet heavy snow here in WBL.... not even sure if we got 6 inches.... maybe... but I can't imagine 6 inches of wet snow, let alone 19 inches...

nickmon got wet snow in Hibbing, and we got it here in the Cities, I gotta believe it was wet in Duluth..... 40 mph winds on top of that??? Yikes..

I dodged the storms in DC and Duluth, but the snow finally caught up with me. I'm stranded in Chicago for another night. Mad

Fish, it was very heavy, very wet. It wasn't nearly as bad down here by the lake. We took a drive tonight up to the Mall and the piles of snow left by the snowplows were huge.

It wasn't as bad as they predicted it would be. A few power outages here and there, lots of butt-busting snow for people to shovel and snowblow. Hey, it's Duluth. We know how it can be. Laughing

That snow line drifted South around Monday night / Tuesday.

2 inches still dropped that day in the Metro area though. The heavy stuff, again, stayed in the South.

Cool

That last storm that was predicted to dump 10-14" on Duluth? We got a trace of snow. It all went to the south of us.

Nice job, NWS!
