Looks like that map was from a DOS version of something.

Earl's site is always high on predicted totals so take that graphic with a large grain of salt. 6-10" total by Tuesday morning is more likely.

That's total snowfall accumulation. So, whatever doesn't melt from this snow would be included in that projection. And, as Ashley has said a couple times, it's still early. I don't think either she nor Matt are ready to say that's the number we'll get. But it's a number that's out there.

It does look like 10 when it's sized down to fit. Here's a better look:

Does that really say 14 inches? Is that 14 more or 14 total? Either way... I guess I'm off for groceries and will bring in some firewood.

I'm guessing that we're going to like it a lot less once the legend is up!!

Maps without legends, graphs without scales, numbers in tables without description or units. Welcome to the new age of computers enabling sloppiness.

The dissemination of information is so easy and rapid that those who generate the information don't take the time to review their work. They trust the computer. Trust the multicolored image in the article.

It is computer generated...it is a fact.
