Overnight, nearly a metre of snow is set to blanket the east coast. Or, if you don't have a tape measure to gauge the fall, approximately one dog's worth.
This slightly off-the-wall visualisation by the BBC shows you how passing dogs should measure up to the scheduled snow fall, shown as the dashed line. If you can't see any fully grown schnauzers nearby, it looks like the forecasters got it right. Or, you know, you don't live near any schnauzers. [BBC via Flowing Data]
