Are you ready for the big one?
I came downstairs at 5 a.m. today and flipped on the TV while doing my stretches. A meteorologist for Channel 27 was showing a map covering much of Rock County, including the Janesville area, with a section that can expect 4 to 7 inches of snow Wednesday into Thursday. He expects the Madison area to get even more.
Blowing and drifting likely will cause travel problems.
After the drought we suffered through most of this year, shouldn’t we be welcoming any precipitation? Are you looking forward to the recreational opportunities of skiing and/or snowblowing that a good snowfall would bring, even if it at first means shoveling and plowing and slippery driving conditions? Have you been hoping for a white Christmas? Well, it sounds like it’s coming.
(Unless, of course, that little thing with the Mayan calendar is correct. Then, guess we shouldn't even waste time shoveling, eh?)
Or do you think meteorologists have been wrong too often to trust?
