WTF: Did You Say Blizzard?

Holy shit:


A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST THIS EVENING.

A POWERFUL WINTER STORM WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTH TEXAS TODAY. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO FALL DURING THE MORNING HOURS WITH AREAS OF RAIN TRANSITIONING TO AREAS OF SNOW FROM WEST TO EAST. SNOW MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES...WITH AVERAGE ACCUMULATIONS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES OVER THE WARNING AREA. THE HIGHEST ACCUMULATIONS OF NEAR 5 INCHES WILL OCCUR GENERALLY NORTHWEST OF A LINE FROM BRECKENRIDGE TO GAINESVILLE.

IN ADDITION TO THE SNOW...STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS OF 30 TO 40 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 50 MPH WILL RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW ACROSS THE WARNING AREA. NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WILL RESULT IN VISIBILITIES BELOW A QUARTER OF A MILE IN SOME LOCATIONS. A BLIZZARD WARNING MAY BE NEEDED FOR PORTIONS OF THE WARNING AREA IF CONDITIONS DETERIORATE WORSE THAN ANTICIPATED THIS AFTERNOON.

THESE CONDITIONS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR AT TIMES IMPOSSIBLE. EXTREME CAUTION IS ADVISED IF YOU MUST TRAVEL.

I ain't going nowhere, boys. Always have wanted to see a White Christmas . . . but this don't sound quite like what I pictured. Daaayum.

Update. 3:30 p.m., 29 degrees, wind chill 15, wind 20+ mph:





Update. 4:30 p.m. Still snowing. The poor doves and a pair of cardinals crowd the feeder tray:

Don't you worry about that David, all stocked up here with a quart of rum and a suitcase of beer. For medicinal purposes of course.
