Just As I Thought

They always inflate their inches

There I was, minding my own business, when the shrill and shocking alert from my weather radio blared, making me jump. This gadget only ever goes off when there’s weather like a tornado or severe thunderstorm; today it was heralding the coming of the snow.
I can’t remember ever hearing this warning before: “HEAVY SNOW WARNING.”
We could get anywhere from 1″ to 18″. Now that’s what I call a CYA forecast.
Anyway, I just had a bizarre feeling last week that we would get hit by one big storm before spring, and said as much to people… they didn’t believe me. Now, this one I’m not so sure about, I don’t have a feeling of certainty about it, but the forecasters are certainly having a lot of fun (as they usually do when the world is about to come to an end). Nonetheless, I brought work home with me on Friday ‘cos I felt some twinge.
Whee! Snow!!
I’m gonna appreciate California so much in two weeks.

[As always, the Backyard Weather cam is on, for you folks living in the Bahamas and other tropical climes who want to see just what amount of snow causes the capital of the most powerful nation on Earth to shut down completely. I’m recording a timelapse of the “heavy snow event” as well, just for amusement. If it’s at all interesting, I’ll post it later.]
