Happy Groundhog Day!
• We are not having a repeat of last Monday’s snowstorm, contrary to media hysteria. The snow and sleet we saw overnight is expected to turn to heavy rain later this morning as the thermometer climbs to 40 degrees this morning. Look out later this afternoon when the temperature again plummets and all this stuff freezes. We’re expecting a low of 12 degrees tonight and highs below freezing tomorrow. Stay tuned to your local school district for information on delays and closings.
