The weather folks had our region in a panic with a “huge” snowstorm that was going to hit us on Sunday/Monday. They called for 10″-14″ of snow and more along the Shore locations.
What we got was about an 1-1/2″ of light puffy snow. The precipitation didn’t start at 6 pm like they predicted on Sunday. It started around 9 pm and began as rain, not snow.
It sleet for a bit and we expected to see 6-8″ of snow when we woke up but what there was on the ground hysterically less. Bean turned on the news and they said don’t worry (who was worrying?) the wraparound band of snow would produce “A HALF OF A FOOT” of snow. You know, ’cause that sounds like more that what it is…6″ of snow.
Guess what happened with the wraparound band of snow? Um…NOTHING. It gave us perhaps an additional dusting and that was it. So all of those schools that put in that they were closed the night before the impending doom wasted a day off. The smart ones waited and aired on the side of caution by calling a 2-hr. delay.
It all didn’t matter to me much since I wasn’t going to work. I was felled by a stomach virus and spent the day feeling like ick.
What a waste of money all those satellite projections, computer calculations and Street View 3000! Want the weather report…ask a farmer or look out the window. You have about the same chance of guessing what’s going to happen as the local weather guy.
