Well, That was a Big Bust
Well, that was a big to-do about nothing, wasn't it?
They were predicting 4-6 inches of snow for yesterday. All of the TV weather talking heads and hands have been talking about nothing else for DAYS. The Bengals game and the commute home afterward were going to be a flat mess because of the SNOW. Kroger's has been swamped since Friday; sold out of milk, eggs, bread and bathroom tissue.
The wife and I went shopping Thursday and got two loaves of bread. She was out again Sunday morning, and wanted to pick up BREAD, because of the snow. WHY!?!?!? We have two unopened loaves in the kitchen already! But the SNOW she says. What if were snowed in? Long enough to eat two loaves of bread? Not hardly.
And what did we get? 50 degrees and rain. Lots and lots of rain. Probably 2 inches of rain.
Not that I am really complaining mind you; I would rather have the rain. It's a lot easier to deal with. I have never in my life shoveled any rain off my driveway.
It's the disappointment; I was promised SNOW bygawd; DEEP SNOW. And I got nuthin'.
Well; its only January. we've still got a few weeks to get dumped on.
But here is my question; will any of these TV 'experts' explain WHY we didn't the storm they have spent a week hyping?
My guess is no. Why won't they? Is it because they won't own up to the error, and will dump this whole episode down the memory hole, or is it because they don't know why we got 2 inches of rain instead of 6 inches of snow?
I sometimes think I could do as good a job as any TV weatherman.
After all; I've got the free app on my smart phone.
