From the URGENT National Weather Service weather message today:
THIS STORM WILL LIKELY PARALYZE TRAVEL DUE TO HEAVY SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW...AS WELL AS BLIZZARD CONDITIONS NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR. A STORM OF THIS MAGNITUDE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE VERY DANGEROUS OR IMPOSSIBLE DRIVING CONDITIONS.
Eeeep! They’re not kidding around! (But our big boss reminded us today that we don’t shut down the office for weather. Sigh... we’ll see what my driveway has to say about that!)
