December '08 winter hurricane coming soon....

Not really astronomical in nature, but definitely interesting if you are a weather geek and into this kind of scientific stuff!
Here we sit just hours away from the Blizzard of 2008, which is supposed to start smacking us tomorrow afternoon. Will it really happen or just fizzle out like most snowstorm forecasts which get everyone all excited, reporters "LIVE" at the scene with continuing coverage and kids hoping for a snow day? We'll see, but confidence seems high that hurricane force winds will blow down from the passes of the Cascades with 90mph gust.
Anyway, I found a weather blog site that I've started checking often. Cliff Mass' Weather Blog. Cliff wrote a book on NW weather (which I just ordered today) and really seems to know his stuff from what is on his blog. I'm sure he could out-forecast Jeff Renner!
