Another winter storm is developing in central Kansas and will move into northeast Kansas tonight, according to Jennifer Schack, 6news meteorologist.

There is a chance for light freezing rain and drizzle to begin about midnight, Schack said. She said there is a better chance for snow accumulation to begin after 2 a.m. She said to expect between two and four inches to accumulate Friday.

The National Weather Service issued a snow advisory for Douglas County that extends from 9 p.m. today until noon Friday. The advisory is a precaution for inconveniences such as travel delays.

Schack said temperatures will stay in the 20s today, with wind chills in the teens.

Informed~ one point for cleverly making the dare. Ten points for the frostbitten-tongued daredevil!

What would happen if you strapped frozen bricks of spam to your shoes and slid down 14th St? Would it be a smooth ride? Would every dog in town follow you, licking your spammy trail? I think you'd score major points, regardless.

spam...spam...spam I am; soapdish, I hope you found that recipe for lightly sauteed spam in a delicate garlic sauce served over angelhairpasta? or, spam and oysters quesche? maple syrup glazed baked spam...for this you must get the entire spam outa the can uncut, no mean feat. just hope you're prepared with all that spam neighbor. if all else fails, put the spam cans into your ancient hurling device and use them for target practice.

No, it's not panic time - read the post - it will only be an inconveniance. In other words NO snow days for anyone tomorrow - better get your butts to work or else. The ice could be 2 ft. thick - too bad we had a snow day already and your not getting another one until the cows come home.

I've bought up all the milk and bread in town and I'm making my kids stand on downtown street corners peddling it at a 1000% markup.

After that, we're going to put illegal chains on all our tires and wait for the freezing drizzle to start. We're having a competition to see who can run the most drivers off the road.

If you want to play, slap some chains on your oldest, toughest vehicle and head out this evening. Post your results later. Bonus points for flipping SUVs with blonde drivers! ;-) Triple bonus points for spinning out any vehicle with politician stickers, bragging-about-one's-kid stickers, or my-other-car-is-a-whatever stickers.

I hit up the grocery store for cans of beans and spam, ran to Ace to get 80 lbs of ice melt, cut off as many drivers as I could in my panic, and now I'm sitting here waiting for doom.

Would you say it is time to panic?

Yes, I would, Kent.
