(Toledo, OH) I have spent the last few hours taking care of some loose ends before the arrival of what is already being billed as the Blizzard of 2007. Our local meteorologists are calling for 8-12 inches of snow from Tuesday through Wednesday, with 30 mph gusts driving 3-4 foot drifts.
The Kroger at Monroe and Secor was jam-packed, as area residents - likely driven into semi-panic mode by the ominous forecasts - flocked to stock up on necessities.
My wife reported that she had to park in the "furthest possible space" in the lot, and that the traffic going in and out of the grocery store was particularly hectic.

I intend to keep my driveway clear at any cost, and I will be cracking the proverbial whip on any rugrats who think that "snow day" means "watch TV for 12 hours day."
My prediction is a solid foot of snow, and the city largely shutting down until Thursday. Any predictions on your end? Are you near the projected path of the the Blizzard of 2007?
