I meant to write about something besides weather, but I’m having issues getting started with anything else. Gods know I shouldn’t get into politics, because that’ll yield either boredom or trouble. I don’t whine in my journal, and I haven’t won the lottery. We’re running out of topics, here.
So, in the weather news: Suddenly this afternoon, a winter storm warning was hoisted for the county in which I live (and several others near it). But the forecast for my little part in the south end of that county, as provided by the National Weather Service at around 4 p.m., says the accumulation of snow will be an inch or less, and the accumulation of ice 0.1 of an inch or less. That’s no winter storm. Somewhere a few miles north of my house, though, the equation changes. In the north end of my county, they’re calling for 3-7 inches of snow, after a spell of rain and freezing rain. High winds will prevail across everywhere in southeast Michigan.
Amazing, that they can attempt to be so pin-point with the precipitation amounts. We’ll see how this all turns out. It doesn’t take a lot of movement in the upper air currents to suddenly dump a lot of snow somewhere else, like on my house.
In the meantime, if you happen to see bits of the Ohio and Tennessee river valleys flying around, kindly catch them so their owners can pick them up. There are actually forecasts for tornadoes there.
