Another winter storm hit the Washington, DC area. After many winter storm false alarms in the past years— with the exception of the true blizzards in the winter of 2009-2010 — people in our area generally spend about a day mulling whether the forecast again missed the mark; or they complain about how one agency or another bungled the snow-clearing mission. Only children stay faithful hoping for schools closures.
Weather prediction in our region is like counting on a daisy petals or courting a capricious lover. Although, this time the weather people got it right, we already got a foot and a half of snow. The layer of snow on my front yard today is definitely deeper than my cat’s height.
