Ishpeming, Michigan – January 5th, 2016 – Before I hit the sack on Sunday night I looked out my living room window to find 5-6 inches of light fluffy snow in my driveway. No big deal… just get the snow scoop out and I’ll have it taken care of in a jiffy. As I was shoveling the snow was getting more and more intense late Sunday night and early Monday. It was probably coming down at a rate of an inch per hour. I finished shoveling and my driveway had nearly another inch of fresh snow when I was done!
I hit the sack between midnight and 1am. The snow hadn’t stopped… it was only getting more intense! By the time I woke up on Monday morning I already had another foot of fluffy snow in my driveway. Maybe it’s just me but this storm really came out of the blue! I heard a Winter Weather Advisory during the Weather Eye Forecast on American Country Gold with Elmer.. but didn’t expect this!
Is it just me or did this storm just come out of the blue?!
