New England Braces Itself Again

Standard

The weather gurus are all a-dither. It’s going to snow!! Late tonight and tomorrow!! Possibly 1-2 inches per hour during the height of the storm!! What bozos — they report just about any falling frozen precipitation like it’s a re-enactment of the Blizzard of ’78. No doubt, the grocery stores will be full to bursting with panicked people buying the obligatory milk and bread, because y’know it could be DAYS before the roads are passable and there could be power outages and hurricane force winds are not out of the realm of possibility and hey, what about those frogs and locusts…….

First snow

Fer crying in your beer, this is New England, people!!! There have been snow “events” here for centuries!! How did people ever manage to make it through without the media to guide their way?

As lame as these (ahem) meteorologists are when predicting weather and scaring the daylights out of people, it’s still alot of fun when they have to backpedal the next day because the predictions didn’t turn out quite the way they thought. Of course, it’s not their fault — the computer models that they were using predicted the track of the storm incorrectly, there would have been alot more snow but the temperature rose a couple more degrees than they thought it would, yada yada yada.

They make weather predicting too complicated. Sweet Baboo has a stick on the wall of the garage. It points up at a 45° angle when the weather is fair and down at a 45° angle when the weather is not fair. It’s never wrong. And really, that’s all I need to know. The details just muddy everything up.
