Below is a time-lapse camera read of a snow dump in Madison in 2011.  But you get the picture.   If you can remember that far—three months ago in January—it was 20 inches of the white stuff.

…and it is coming down again as I speak. It may be 29 degrees, but it’s gonna feel like 20 degrees.

We’ve had a few days of respite, during which I saw my first and hopefully not last wild turkey poking about in this area where there is no hunting, but the white stuff is back again with a vengeance.  Yes, I said wild turkey, and not the alcoholic beverage, Wild Turkey.  Seems like that dang groundhog was lying.  I am soooo tired of snow slowing me up walking and ice threatening to pull me down to the ground.  I want to be able to walk down a street and not see snow, but flowers and vegies, and trees with leaves.  This is now, however, not the future.

Here is the forecast from Weather 3000’s Haddie McLean:

A large snowstorm will move through the area today and bring significant snow along with it.  The heaviest snow should occur in the late morning hours, and will then taper to flurries later in the day. The storm total snowfall will range from 5-10″+ southwest of Dane County (with the highest totals near the Mississippi River) to 3-5″ northeast of Dane county (with the lightest amounts north of Beaver Dam). High temperatures will rise only slightly to near 30 degrees. Lows will fall to the upper teens by Wednesday morning.

After this storm system passes, a slow warming trend should begin to take place, taking our temperatures into the lower 30s on Wednesday, into the middle 30s on Thursday, to near 40 on Friday.

TODAY:
Mostly cloudy, windy, and cold with snow; snow may be heavy at times. Additional snow accumulations 3-8” likely, with the heaviest totals west/southwest of Madison. Blowing and drifting snow is likely.

TONIGHT:
Mostly cloudy and colder with snow tapering to flurries early and ending overnight. Storm total snow accumulations of 5-10”+ in Dane county and areas to the south and west, and 3-5” northeast of Dane county.

Madison Metro bus service will continue despite the storm, but expect delays so plan accordingly.

Eighty-one (81) schools have closed down for the day.

Try to have a good one today…
