patterns of ink

How fruitless to be ever thinking yet never embrace a thought... to have the power to believe and believe it's all for naught. I, too, have reckoned time and truth (content to wonder if not think) in metaphors and meaning and endless patterns of ink. Perhaps a few may find their way to the world where others live, sharing not just thoughts I've gathered but those I wish to give. Tom Kapanka

It's a "Watch" Not a "Warning"
But Consider Yourself Warned...


The followng text is from weather.com

A WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING.

* TRAVEL AND COMMERCE ACROSS THE WATCH AREA MAY BE SEVERELY IMPACTED BY HEAVY SNOW AND SIGNIFICANT BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY.

* HEAVY SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW WILL MAKE CLEARING OF ROADS DIFFICULT TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE GREATLY INTO WEDNESDAY EVENING AS THE WINDS DIE DOWN.

* NUMEROUS EVENT CANCELLATIONS INCLUDING SCHOOL CLOSURES ARE POSSIBLE... AS WELL AS FLIGHT DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS.

* HEAVY SNOW IS POSSIBLE ACROSS THE WATCH AREA WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR TOTALS IN EXCESS OF A FOOT BY WEDNESDAY EVENING... ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF A MUSKEGON TO ALMA LINE.

According to this radar map, it's already on its way and will hit west Michigan Tuesday evening.

[Note: My daughter Kim is in Chicago a few blocks from the lake. We typically get her weather about five or six hours later. Here is what they are bracing for: SNOW ACCUMULATIONS IN EXCESS OF A FOOT ARE EXPECTED OVER MUCH OF THE WATCH AREA FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON
THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. LOCALIZED TOTALS IN EXCESS OF 18 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY NEAR THE LAKE.] 88736
