It's 4 degrees (F) out. The wind rocked the house all night, but there isn't that much snow. I'm not sure yet what the road conditions are, ice and drifting-wise.

Here's the forecast, courtesy of Channel 8 in Grand Rapids:

Bitterly cold air will grip the region today, along with strong winds. Blowing and drifting snow will cause huge travel challenges today, as Arctic air pours into the region. We're only expecting another 1-3 inches of additional snow, which will taper to flurries by early afternoon. Partial sunshine will return this afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will recover only into the teens, with wind chills below zero much of the day.

If the planes are flying at 1 p.m., I may make it yet.
