It’s Saturday, and I’m enjoying the winter sun. The sky is that color of watercolor blue that only winter can produce during a January high pressure zone, but it is cold outside – 22 degrees at high noon. All the better to stay inside, do light housework, grade papers and study, right?
The forecast on my Weatherbug® says we are in for it beginning on Monday, when a 50 percent of “frozen mix” is headed our way. Ditto on Tuesday and Wednesday. So we may be about to get hammered. Part of me says “Yes! Snow Day!” and part of me says “No, not again, please.” In 2007 and 2008, we had more than our share of bad weather around here. Three or four ice storms, several tornadoes, and floods. An uneventful year, weather-wise, would be appreciated.
