"The weather channel says we're getting 8-12 inches of snow."
"When?" I ask as I continue soaking up the sun while reading on the porch.
My reaction was quite understandable, I'm sure.
I didn't believe it. I mean, it was warm!
Well, warm for Minnesota, anyway. All of the snow was melting,
and I wasn't wearing a coat! We were in the middle of a friggin heat wave!
By the time I went to bed, there was still no snow falling.
"Ha!" I snorted. "Some snow!!!"
And I went to bed, content in my knowledge that
I was right.
Well, the next morning, I looked out the window after waking up, and of course...
Everything was covered with snow... again... and it was still snowing. Indeed, the snow didn't let up for more than a few minutes at a time until it took a break at noon, then started up again...
and continued all night long.
I guess I laughed to soon, because... yeah. I'm in the "heaviest" snowfall band.
Who knew, right? I suppose maybe those meteorologists do get it right every now and then... even when it feels like they're spouting nonsense.
I guess I'll just have to wait a little while longer before bringing out the swimsuits!
