So, Where is That Storm?

I was a bit amused yesterday by some of the local scuttlebutt concerning this storm which Ben says has stalled, but is still creeping along.

One of the amusing things up here is that you can have one type of weather on one side of the valley and a completely different mix on the other side. Just take a look at the web cams here.

What I found annoying was that people were making up reports that we were going to get ten inches of snow. Uh, listen to the forecast–how about one inch–maybe?

Also, this time of year it is hard to predict whether or not we will get snow or rain. Anyone who has lived here a while knows that we can experience heavy snow fall or torrential rain fall OR both!

Since the temperature is currently 38 degrees F my bet is rain–unless the temperature drops. Plus, snow was predicted at above 6,000 feet.

I have no idea how the rumors get going but it always amazes me that nobody seems to actually check the weather forecast before they begin perpetuating their ideas about it.

Since everyone has such an interest in this topic, perhaps we should bring in a group to teach meteorology to the locals…heh, heh, heh…

    So.. we can’t talk about religion, we can’t talk about politics, and now we shouldn’t talk about the weather? What else is there when you don’t know what to say to somebody? BTW.. How’s the weather over there?
