No Hype: Messy, Slow Commute Monday, But Not Worse Ever Storm

I've noticed the national news media is really hyping the storm of ice, snow, rain and yuck along the East Coast.
Snow falling in Virginia Sunday morning.
Storm is heading toward New England.  

No doubt it's a big headache for motorists, and just about everyone affected by the weather, really.

But it's not the end of the world. That's especially true for us here in Vermont, where the storm will blow through tonight and Monday.

It is going to be a messy one, with snow, mixing with or changing to sleet, freezing rain and rain by Monday morning's commute. So leave early for work, you'll probably need the extra time to get to your destination.

And please don't drive on the ice like a moron, please? Everybody will thank you for not blocking up the roads with the accident you cause by doing 70 mph on glare ice.

It looks like most of northern New England, including Vermont will get anywhere from 1 to 5 inches of snow and ice out of this. So not a HUGE deal, just December in the Northeast.

It will turn cold for the rest of the week. After Monday, don't expect to see temperatures rise above freezing through at least Saturday. There will be some light snow or flurries from time to time, but no enormous storms.

So yeah, just typical winter weather. Deal with it.
