Winter Storm "Q"

Here in Champaign-Urbana, we're expecting 2-4 inches and some ice. It's supposed to begin sometime this afternoon and continue into the night, but right now it's just cloudy and rather ominous looking.

What's it like where you are?

Far West Chicago Suburbs and they are predicting 2-4 inches, which means we'll get a dusting. We've hardly had any snow this whole year.

The flakes are TINY but grass is almost fully covered so far. We are out of school today since afternoon is supposed to be bad. If we get the expected totals, we will probably be out of school tomorrow too. Enjoying a possible long weekend!

Just starting to get a dusting in SW Iowa on our way to 10 inches? School was let out at 11:30 so I went home too and here it is almost 3 and still okay driving conditions. Oh well. It's my busy time at work, but since they've talked up this storm so much, I think I'll be disappointed if we don't get our 10 inches!

3-6 inches expected in the Twin Cities, with another storm on Monday. Starting later tonight, through tomorrow night. Of course I have a 45 mile drive each way, tomorrow evening.

More importantly, did they name the storm yet?

About an hour from you in Bloomington. Looks about the same. But I will believe the snow when I see it. Last time they said 2-4" and we barely got a dusting. Kids are really wanting some snow!!!! (And so am I!!! Then it can be 50 degrees two days later!)

Will be glad to send you some of our leftover snow from our Blizzard Nemo (27inches in one storm). Mounds of snow are still hanging around...waiting for the expected foot from "Q" to join it.

That's what the Q refers to?

Oops - I thought the OP was shortening the word "question".

Oh, and to answer the OP's "Q", for whatever reason, our part of Ohio looks to be getting spared from this one.
