I do not have good news for everyone. This downpour of rain is going to turn into freezing rain, sleet and eventually snow - meaning a nice, slick layer of ice under the heaps of snow on the roads. I... can't... wait... (said no tri-stater, ever). See what the National Weather Service has to say about this Winter Storm Warning.
I'll admit it. I prayed for snow. I wanted a snow day! Don't we all? Now, my fickle self has had enough of the snow. I know the weather isn't up to me but I'd be really okay with warmer temps, flowers, sunshine and balmy weather. However, those lovely things will have to wait.

The strange winter weather pattern will bring us more ice and snow this weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch the area beginning at midnight Saturday night and remaining in effect until Monday morning...
Despite the inherited dangers that came with the winter storm that blanketed the Tri-State under a sheet of ice earlier in the week, such as hazardous driving conditions and power outages for several hundred people in the area (almost all of which has been restored as of this post), Old Man Winter's icy footprint can also be quite pretty in its own weird sort of way.
