For much of the last month, we had been blessed with fairly mild weather. Most days it was comfortably in the 50's, and on a few occasions it even went well above 60. This, of course, had the effect of making people think it was already spring.
What fools these mortals be!
It's actually not all that unusual. We often get a spell of mild weather in the middle of winter. And as sure as the Iraqi people greeting an invading army as liberators, we end up having to pay a price.... Well, okay, maybe it's a little more certain than that.
For those living along the east coast, Mother Nature's bill for the warm January weather arrived in the mail today. The DC area is forecast to get as much as ten inches of snow. Needless to say, all the anticipated white stuff has former DC mayor/current city council member Marion Barry quite excited!
Further to the north, however, it will be even worse. Blizzard warnings are in effect for much of New England, and 15" is expected there, which is almost two inches more than what I have....
