Light The Torches

I am rounding up an angry mob. Join me, won't you?

Meteorologists must be stopped. They toy with the emotions.

Three inches of snow on the way. Uh huh. Yeah. Saturday night it will start.

No. Wait. It won't be here until Sunday evening. But it's not three inches anymore. It's just a trace. Maybe two inches. Depends on where you live. The city is going to get it. Nothing below that line there by your neighboring town. Uh uh. Nope. None for you. Don't even think about a snow day.

Hey! That path has shifted. Looks like you might get some flurries between two and seven a.m. But the drive will be fine. The ground is too warm.

Nothing here this morning. The precipitation cleared out early. It's across the river. The temperature will rise above freezing today. You're going to school. No getting out of duty this Monday morning.

Oh. Seems that there's some sleet down your direction. What's that? Freezing rain. And snow flurries. But only on grassy areas.

What do you mean there's ice on the sidewalks and your car is frozen shut? It's not my fault you didn't bring a scraper. It's almost winter. You should be prepared. I can't explain that inch of snow. And the ice on the bridges.

I'm just a meteorologist.

I was out of town last week and coming back in Sunday night. I got lots of weather warnings on my phone about the "snow". I was worried about my flight being delayed. Ha!

Yeah, meteorologists are about as accurate as telephone psychics and fortune tellers.

Does a two wick candle count? We got snow this morning. Big old flakes. I awoke to the snow plow going past with amber lights flashing. And it is COLD!!!! Okay--I know that last year it was COLD and snowy long before this, but I was lulled into a feeling that these 50 degree temps would continue through the winter...darn!

The candle will count, as long as you brandish it menacingly and shake your fist. Not the fist holding the candle. OSHA would frown on that. I think it's in their Angry Mobs With Flaming Torches guidelines.
