    1-2'' of snow is a storm?

    All day today the weather service has only been calling for 1-2 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow for the Ames area.

    Thats not too bad at all. Hopefully all the Ankeny/DSM/Ames and surrounding area crowd won't be shy about making the trip up for the Drake game.

    The news has been excited and hyping this for days now, they have storys ready to go on the first big snow. They have to call it a storm because if they dont their new isnt exciting. The weather guys also have to do the same because they dont want to wrong. My guess is the we wont get any snow and the only reason snow is still in the forecast is because its too late to be wrong now.

    The ice is the bigger issue. It's really slick out right now.

    Re: 1-2'' of snow is a storm?

    It just was weird how weather.com has said less than an inch to day and about 1 inch tomorrow, yet the news stations around here are going crazy.

    Up north it might be a different senario.

    Depends where you live...

    Where I'm at 1-2" of snow would shut down schools for atleast a day, and people would be running to the grocery store to stock up before the Snow Storm hit


    make it 6" and you have yourself a blizzard


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    It's really slick in ames right now. My car looks to be covered in about 1/8" of ice already.

    well if there is an inch of ice under that 2" of snow - then it is an issue.

    Agreed, snow doesn't bother me. Ice does. But, I still plan on making the game.

    Not to mention the 20-30 mph winds.

    I'm about as north as you can go in Iowa and we've only gotten about 2-3 inches tonight but it's still snowing pretty hard.

    They will put enough salt on the major roadways that it should be fine by tomorrow night.

    I will be shocked if I have an inch of snow in my driveway tomorrow when I wake up.

    Good thing that those news stations are only doing the Ames forecast.

    It is only raining here right now. If the temp. drops things could get nasty.

    It's Iowa, we like talking about the weather. Oops, did I just say that

    They were forecasting as much as 6-8 inches at one point and locally even more. The forecast changed dramatically about 12 hours ago. I actually would take the 6-8 inches of snow over .10th inch of freezing rain.
