Nor'easter blankets Montpelier with snow

It's the end of December, and it looks like Vermont is getting its first real snow storm.

As of 2 p.m. Thursday, I'm measuring more than 10 inches of accumulation on Elm Street near the pool.

The National Weather Service in Burlington is forecasting as much as 17 and as little as 9 inches of snow.

Will the storm warrant the headline of "Snowpocalypse"? We'll see, but it's more likely going to look a lot like a seasonally normal snowstorm.

Heavy snowfall is expected to continue through Thursday and taper off Friday morning.

The weather service is forecasting between 5 and 9 inches Thursday. Then another 1 to 3 inches Thursday night.

Forecasters at the weather service are also calling for a chance of snow through Sunday, but they're not yet willing to place any wagers on accumulation, at least not publicly.

Meteorologist Kerrin Jeromin tweeted, "Don't get excited about Sunday, dusting at best."

But if you have to drive, take it easy and wear your seatbelt.
