Winter's last gasp ... & then Spring!


Just keep repeating that time to yourself this morning.

6:45 p.m., that's when spring officially arrives.

Of course between now and then we're going to have to deal with winter's last gasp.

Yes, we're expecting snow this morning.

That means the TV stations have dispatched reporters to the far western suburbs so they can breathlessly tell us that snow has arrived. At 6:45 a.m. it appears the snow is as close as West Chester.

Here's what we can expect today.

It looks like we're going to get somewhere in the vicinity of 1-3 inches. The guess here is that the roads will remain for the most part just wet. Snow might accumulate on grassy surfaces. It's tough at this time of year for snow to actually cover the roads.

We'll see.

I suggest a chant. Repeat after me:

6:45 ... 6:45 ... 6:45 ...
