Mother Nature is certainly a perverse bitch with a really weird sense of humor.
If y’all’ll remember, last snowstorm, the forecast gurus said we were going to get about a foot of accumulated snow. Then, however, warm air worked into the storm, and we got about an inch or two of sleet, then between 4.5 and 5 inches of snow.
This time around, the forecast was for between 2 and 4 inches of snow for yesterday, the a whole mixed bag of stuff for today. What we actually got yesterday was between 7 and 9 inches of snow. Some areas closer to the coast received 12. I kid you not. To repeat: Forecast a foot, we get less than half; forecast a few inches, get nearly a foot.
I am so not looking forward to today’s ice event, and the expected power outages even less. Of course, since the forecast says snow, then ice, then rain, I’m sure Mother Nature’ll mix it up even more, just for fun.
