Post First true Blizzard of the season for the Plains

The National Weather Service has now issued a Blizzard Warning, Winter Storm Warning, and a Blizzard Watch for a good chunk of the Dakotas.
I am sorry to say this Jamie, but you are now in the Blizzard Watch The only caveat is that the temperatures will be fairly close to freezing during the overnight period when the precip occurs.

Yup, it looks rough for us. I just noticed another thread about the OK/KS area. We're also supposed to start out with summer storms. West of us they're supposed to have a snowstorm. Our future shows summer storms/rain/sleet/snow/winds. Not good.

Wow that sure is a dream state for me with summer storms/rain/sleet/snow/winds, just as long as nobody gets hurt in the summer storms.

The area of the state that I live in is part of tornado alley so there's no guarantee of safety. We had a bad day a few years ago~it's called "Tornado Tuesday" and we had 60 some tornadoes in about 8 hours. They only measure it by 24 hour periods or we'd hold the record. But alas, we have to SHARE that distinguished award with Texas.

But generally, we don't have as many or as powerful tornadoes as Ok/Ks/Mo, etc. Don't let that make you too complacent cause we do have a "FIVE" on occasion.

As bad as hurricanes are I have much more concern for those who are in areas that can lose power in winter storms. It is one thing to be hot with no AC and something else to have freezing conditions without power. Stay safe those of you in harms way during these storms.

Just popping to say I am thinking of you, Jammie. I heard about the blizzards up over there and thought of you. I'm a working woman again so don't have time to keep up with most anything. Stay safe and all the best to you and yours, Jammie.
