A local television reporter is doing the dirty work today, heading out in an alleged blizzard to see if there is indeed snow.

While it looks like there is indeed plenty of snow on the ground and on its way, it is best to wait for absolute confirmation during the evening news. Local stations should have weather reports as early as 5 p.m. so you’ll know if there is snow. Until then, don’t take any chances.

As a news organization, the Hamster has yet to confirm the forecast as we haven’t been outside in weeks.
