Snow Predictions for Indiana - make your bets and buy your shovels

I remember Bob Gregory used to predict how many days it would snow.....and never got it right.  Remember - it's Indiana.  There's always a week somewhere in the midst of winter that it breaks 50-60 degrees and the motorcycles hit the street.  Then the next week we are shoveling just to get out of our driveways.  Here's some historical data to draw from......

I happened to be a student at IU during the blizzard of 1978 and they cancelled classes for the first time in 50 years!  I've lived through ice storms and other weather phenomenon....and have never had to make a mad rush to the grocery for milk and eggs.  Embrace it and enjoy!

We have barely had any snow in Minnesota this year so far compared to last year at this time we were buried.
