...and I'm just a disgruntled Bears-fan FIB, anxiously awaiting the measley 1-3" we're supposed to get, after a ton of rain. I've got these big fatty winter tires I'm just dying to test out hwith some 4WD blizzard action, and it looks like this won't be it. WI and the in-laws in the far reaches of the UP get all the fun.

Jay Cutler is an amazing QB. As long as the game means absolutely nothing, that is.

I'm pretty excited for snow, I don't know why, I guess I get excited easily.... I'm going to Evil's cave, meet me there

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LA CROSSE WI 1038 PM CST WED DEC 19 2012

...THUNDER SNOW POSSIBLE FOR PARTS OF NORTHEAST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN...

.MODERATE SNOW CONTINUED TO FALL ACROSS NORTHEAST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN LATE THIS EVENING...AND THERE IS THE THREAT THAT THUNDER COULD ENTER THIS MIX. IF IT DOES...SNOWFALL RATES WOULD INCREASE TO AROUND 2 INCHES PER HOUR...AND VISIBILITIES WOULD DROP BELOW 1/2 MILE. THIS THUNDER THREAT SHOULD ONLY CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS.

FARTHER NORTH THE LEADING EDGE OF THE SNOW WAS ADVANCING NORTH OF I-90 AND SHOULD BE NEAR A LAKE CITY MINNESOTA TO BLACK RIVER FALLS WISCONSIN LINE BY MIDNIGHT. VISIBILITIES WILL DROP TO AROUND 2 MILES WITHIN 1 TO 2 HOURS AFTER THE SNOW ONSET... WITH MOST OF THE HEAVIER SNOW MOVING IN OVERNIGHT. SNOWFALL RATES WITH THE HEAVY SNOW OF 1 TO 2 INCHES PER HOUR ARE EXPECTED.

TRAVEL CONDITIONS WILL QUICKLY DETERIORATE AS THE HEAVIER SNOW MOVES IN. DIAL 5 1 1 FOR THE LATEST ROAD CONDITIONS.

BLIZZARD TO NEAR-BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP AS THE WINDS INCREASE BY EARLY THURSDAY MORNING. WHITEOUT CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE REGION...WITH VISIBILITIES 1/2 MILE OR LESS COMMON ELSEWHERE.

THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING STORM...WITH THE MOST EXTREME IMPACTS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF NORTHEAST IOWA AND SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN. PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS BY STAYING HOME...GETTING TO YOUR TRAVEL DESTINATION BEFORE THE SNOW BEGINS...AND PREPARING FOR SIGNIFICANT BLOWING...DRIFTING AND WHITEOUT CONDITIONS. ROAD CREWS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH THE INTENSE SNOW RATES.

Not only is the Midwest getting severe weather but so is the South and East Coast! Draco may be a "winter storm" dumping 18" of snow in some Wisconsin counties but it's also bringing severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings in the warmer states! Heads up!

MADISON - The Governor of Wisconsin has issued a STATE OF EMERGENCY as a winter storm approaches the state.Snow totals of 15" or more are possible during the storm.“I issued this executive order to make sure Wisconsin is prepared for whatever this winter storm may bring,” Governor Scott Walker said in a statement.“Mobilizing our state agency resources during this storm will ensure we leave nothing to chance when it comes to protecting the citizens of Wisconsin.”The declaration puts Wisconsin Emergency Management, the Wisconsin National Guard and the State Patrol at the ready for various emergencies.


My shopping is done. Car back from the repair shop and in the garage. Nowhere to go for 6 days. I'll be watching this snow storm from the safety and warmth of home. Staying off the roads.

"Draco" was a lame "storm" that only brought 85mph gusts on the coast and 57mph in the valley. There was some rain and a stiff breeze and that's it. Hardly anything to to talk about. Edit: looks worse for you guys, good luck.

I just awoke from my slumber to the sound of snow plows scraping the pavement. Looks like we have about 6" of snow so far (1"/hr.) and its near white-out conditions with the winds whipping around at 40+mph!

Draco is HERE!

I guess Im just wondering why this is in 2012 forum.

Well you did call it a "doomsday storm".

I'm hoping it is jest that you placed significance on the day/s a winter storm is happening.

Hell we've already seen threads saying cloudy day were the beginning of "3 days of darkness" and another saying fog in China was portentous.

Your tone seems lite and not "doomy" so I'll take this as a sort of satire thread in the 2012 forum.

I added Doomsday to the title only because this storm is hitting now, one day from December 21st, 2012.

We're under a blizzard warning until midnight. Around 7" of snow and still falling heavy. I've heard thundersnow in the distance.

We're not supposed to see Draco until Friday night into Saturday here!
Wonder which will get us first? The Apocalypse or Draco???

As one of the original Trekkies, I'm scratching my head.
I can't remember the 'Q's'! I am getting pretty old though!
Yeah...that's it...the memory is starting to go!!!
Which season were they in???

I even used to have a cat named, 'Telshia'!
If anyone has to Google that, they are not an authentic Trekkie!!!

WOQ
