So I’m sitting in the living room this morning watching the news like I do every morning before work and they’re talking about how there’s a snowstorm brewing to the south that looks to dump more snow on places that have already gotten plenty this season, but that it’ll miss us here in south eastern Michigan. “At most,” the perky weather-lady says with a grin, “We’ll see a few flakes, but no accumulation.” So you can imagine my surprise when I stepped out the front door to see the following. Click the pics to make ‘em bigger.
I had to scrape the windows on the car and let it warm up and everything. Things didn’t get much better when I got on the road either.
As I drove to work it suddenly cleared up and was sunny and there was no snow to be seen on the ground only to go back to near-blizzard conditions again and it did that at least twice. At work there was some snow on the ground and there were flakes in the air, but nothing like what I’d seen at home. So what did it look like when I came home?
Sunny with nary a snowflake to be seen for miles, natch. Needless to say, I was disappointed. It’s two weeks till Christmas and I could do with a little snow cover to heighten the spirit a bit, but it seems like you creeps in Kansas, Missouri and Ohio are hogging it all as you’re all due to get MORE of it tonight! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want tons of snow here, just enough to cover up the brown grass and make everything pretty without making the driving too rough. So if you guys who are hoarding it all to yourselves can find it in your heart to send a inch or two to Michigan, well, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks.
