It's been raining, hailing, snowing, and sleeting (off and on) for the last 3 hours now. There's also been some pretty wicked lightning. The sky is almost black. The weather people are instructing everyone to batten down the hatches. We're supposed to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 feet in the next day or so. The light at the end of the tunnel is that it's supposed to be glorious towards the middle of next week.
