We are experiencing what must be the slowest moving snow storm in history. The NWS started talking about it early last week. The arrival date has been pushed back, and the snow amounts moved up and down. We are in a Blizzard Warning for now, with 6-8 inches predicted along with 50 mile an hour winds.
The grocery stores were packed Saturday with people stocking up before the storm hit. The snow is only just starting. At this rate, people will need to stock up again today since they probably ate everything they bought earlier!
Waiting for the storm is tiresome, and it seems that life is on hold for now. The power has gone off and on eight times in 30 minutes, so something must be happening out there. The cats are swiping at the snow flying past the windows. They are better at waiting than I am.
The NWS folks out here must get pretty bored, since our weather doesn’t change all that much from week to week. When something big like our current stormdevelops, they really play it up, and by the time the storm arrives, it never seems to live up to the hype.
When has the weatherman fooled you? Got any good storm stories?
