The Whisper is able to see how viewers reached this site and what search terms you are looking for in the ‘search’ box. Sometimes this gives an article idea. Over the last two weeks someone has been searching for the terms “How much snow will Wolcott get today”. Well, I don’t have my magic 8 ball, but there’s about 5 inches on my porch at the moment and its still falling. That was after I shoveled 3 inches this morning.

My 6th sense, however predicts one more inch. If any more falls, don’t worry, I predict that the wind will pick up to blow it away. (who needs a snowblower?!). Well… its heavy snow, so… uh.. maybe.

Here’s some more scientific predictions:
Intellicast is predicting 1-2 inches with 10-20 mph winds this afternoon.

WTNH is predicting 1-3 inches, breezy tonight 20 mph winds.

Channel 3 has an interesting forecast guessing from 4-12 inches with question marks. Click for details.
