Tim Keller over on ABC is so full of crap. He came right out and said "we never expected any more than a trace to an inch of snow" when all along everyone has been touting 4-5 inches. I wish I could change my answers when I'm wrong and then act smug thinking I was correct the whole time.

I have snow.....tiny light flakes but its snow....not sticking though...need more to cool off surface temps...
It has changed over to a very lite snow for me again now too. Just went out side to check.

Small water dots are visible on the pavestone. We must be just a touch over freezing right now.
