By 1/2 a foot, you mean 1/2 an inch.  You can't grow crops with snow.

White precipitation problems.

Half the jackasses at work called off. I had to range far afield to ensure that I have an adequate stock of suitable Donner Party Favors if we freeze over and I have to resort to cannibalism. There's a guy in Engineering that will go great with fava beans. I also have to make sure that the babes in Accounting don't slip away. For the repopulation of the planet once we defrost.

I'm looking forward to getting some snow later today. I just hope it finishes up as advertised so it doesn't interfere with my weekend travel plans.

I don't know why 6" would be a problem. You can "bottom out' at 4" most of the time.

Not much drought relief there, Subby. 1" of snow = 0.1" of rain. So they got 0.6 inches of rain. That's a drop in the bucket considering how dry it has been there.

About 8 inches so far, here in the KC burbs.

/how YOU doin'?

I'm quite happy about the water. Mildly disappointed that I can't get the garden's polytunnel ready.

I'm taking a half day from the thing I do which counts for work. So I can go home and do real, physical work.

It's piling on here at Mizzou.

Chancellor Deaton won't cancel.

This makes him a known hoser.

Dateline of article:  February 20, 2013.  That's Wednesday, which was yesterday.

First sentence:  "Blinding snow ... bombarded much of the nation's midsection Thursday ..."  That's today, the 21st.

Did they seriously write this article the day BEFORE the storm?

Of course! You can't get to work when there's snow on the ground!

/MI only expected 2 inches. Meh, even at 8 inches it's only Thursday. Enjoy the white stuff!

City folk are whining as the Midwest gets half a foot of drought relief

Case in point:

JackieRabbit: Not much drought relief there, Subby. 1" of snow = 0.1" of rain. So they got 0.6 inches of rain. That's a drop in the bucket considering how dry it has been there.

True, but snow tends to slowly melt into the ground, meaning more of it actually ends up in the soil. I'd say we're at about... eh... 7 inches now.

We'll take whatever we can get.

It can't be that bad. It hasn't been on the NYC news for a  week ahead of time.

And it will run off, not soak into the ground, as it melts..
God, people in the Midwest are really like that?

Not really. Rain... rain runs off, especially with all of the clay in the soil here. It's been the situation where a good chunk of the winter has been beneath 32 degrees except for short parts of the day. At that point... it just melts little by little.

Yeah, actually I came back to say I was a jerk.

If the ground is frozen, meltwaer will run off. That's why rivers flood in spring. There will be some surface moisture but that evaporates over a few days. Don't know any more about the water shed there so I really can't say much more. A good snow will fill up reservoirs and is important. The lack of snow last year did contribute to the drought in the spring/summer for last year at least, but the something something is the biggest factor.
