Why? Why? Why?!

Published February 15, 2015 by Iphis of Scyros

Why does the weather bureau announce that all the snow in the world is going to fall on us in the next 24 hours when I have no food in the house?  The grocery store was packed with lunatics acting like it was the Cuban Missile Crisis or something, because they think we’re going to get a foot of snow by tomorrow morning.  I just needed to buy groceries because I had absolutely nothing to eat in the house.  (Apart from some granola bars, and some clearance Valentine’s Day brownies I’d gotten at Target…)

I don’t know why people overreact to every pronouncement of “huge snowfall dead ahead!”  Nine times out of ten, we don’t get it.  Not in this region.  I’m not sure why it is, but we almost never get the massive snows that everyone around us does.  I think it’s something to do with the way the energy fluxes around the relatively consistently built suburban sprawl, or something.  Air currents or…heck, I have no idea.  I just know that the storms are always weaker than predicted.  Especially for snow, but for regular rain as well.  And yet some people just don’t seem to notice the trend.  They take the weather forecast at its literal word.

I suppose they’re just trying to be protected in case it’s right, but…well, it inconvenienced me, so I thought I would gripe about it, because I have nothing else to talk about.  I wanted a fast entry so I could add to yesterday’s entry, having thought ahead to make a list today…
