T-minus 9.5 hours until the Blizzard of 10-06 opens up a can of whoop ass all over Colorado Springs.
According to all the talking bobbleheaded weathermen around here, sometime after 9pm this evening we can expect a massive storm to roll into "our little village." A moisture filled warm front coming up out of New Mexico is going to collide with a frosty cold one coming down from the north - right above our wittle heads. They're predicting 30-50mph sustained winds, with gusts hitting the 60mph mark. The Springs proper is looking at getting upwards of 8 inches of snow, while those of us lucky devils up near Monument (which would be yours truly) might be seeing 14 PLUS inches. WOOOHOOO!
However, as predictions go here - who knows. They didn't call the 9+ inches we got in the middle of last week (Tuesday/Wednesay), but then predicted doom and gloom for the second one that hit over the weekend, that dumped - ZIP! I'd love to have a job being a weatherman. I mean, if Jillian Barberie (the ex-Fox Sports weather gal) can do it... anyone can. I'd say a good 80% of the time they're just straight up wrong. Who wouldn't want to have a gig where you can be right a mere 20% of the time and somehow manage to keep your job!? Although I gotta give huge props to Brian Bledsoe (weather dude for the Springs KKTV Channel 11) for taking meteorology to new heights around these parts.
I'll keep ya posted!
