Chance of snow near 100 percent.

The National Weather Service is now forecasting 6-9 inches of snow, which doesn't sound too terrible. But I was looking at the weather data for the huge storm of March 1, 2007, which left us trapped at home for four days with a 4 foot deep snow drift across the driveway. The NWS recorded only 7 inches of snow that day in Omaha.

Uh-oh.

Hopefully things won't be as bad. Since the fence was installed, the snow drifts differently, so maybe it won't pile up as bad. Or it might be worse. The winds aren't forecast to be as strong, either, with gusts to around 30 MPH, rather than the 58 MPH recorded during that storm.
