Ok, it's January 17th, halfway through the month. Thus far, we've seen no snow all winter long. Let's keep it that way, folks. Yeah, yeah. I know, snow is pretty..blah blah blah. Those of you who get around in cars, raise your hand. That's what i thought.
Ok, so we're doing well. Except something has happened. Up until now the weather has been freakishly warm. We've gone through much of the month (and the preceding months) in 50-degree temps. Sometimes higher. But as of yesterday the temperature has plummeted significantly and has become, *gasp!* January-like. Crap!
Ok, I just looked at the 10-day on weather.com which says the high for today is 30 degrees. Brrrrr. And, i'm going to ignore that i saw the forecast for Friday says AM snow showers and for Saturday, i'm going to take "flurries/wind" to mean "fairies/wind" in which case i shall expect to see winged pixie-like creatures being blown about. Or maybe it could mean a bunch of cotton fluffs. Or maybe "flurry" means something else, like...furries. Yeah, maybe it's a typo and there is an alarming amount of little furry animals forecasted to fall from the skies. Little bunnies and hamsters. Whoa. Add the wind to that and we have a disaster. (but no snow!) This thought is stirring up the beginnings of a totally awesome sequel to The Day After Tomorrow. Have you seen it? If not, do it and do it now. "Run! Run from the cold!" I was so nervous. I thought the cold was going to get them.
Back to the snow: I'll keep you posted! And no, you couldn't just check the news to find out if it snowed in NY. Go to the source: ME.
(p.s. 3 paragraphs beginning with "Ok" = me being the coolest.)
