Another Forecast and Another Outcome

Once again, Mother Nature has decided to brush Indiana with only a slight coat of winter rather than slather it on like winters past. Early forecasts for this storm were predicting 6-10 inches of snow in our area. However, as the storm approached less moisture was making its way northward and therefore less precipitation fell. The precipitation that did fall, fell as freezing rain mostly. Overnight, about one-half inch of snow fell and then the freezing rain took over. It was enough to cause travel headaches and close school, but it wasn't the beautiful blanket of snow that we were expecting.
