A Snow Day In Pensacola, Florida?

The local schools and government offices are all closed -- in case of snow.

I'll post more weather maps during the day if there's anything interesting. Word is the snow will begin early in the afternoon. And we should get about three inches of it.

At 1:00 in the afternoon the sleet is getting closer, but no snow yet. At 2:00 PM we had a five-minute snow flurry in the backyard and that was all we got. Near us there were snowfalls of one to three inches. My favorite report on road conditions around here was that "all the highways in [some rural] county were closed until further notice." From three inches of snow?
