Attention Bad Weather

Yesterday while watching a game on television the local emergency warning system kicked in. All channels were temporally interrupted for a severe weather warning. Blizzard coming, prepare yourself, foot and a half of snow, seventy-five mile an hour winds, danger for the next 24 to 36 hours. So what happened? A little wind, up to thirty or so, and not one flake of snow, didn’t need the food/water and flashlight the warning reminded us we needed.

Now I live in a place where we get a hundred plus inches of snow each year and was not worried about another fourteen or fifteen inches. Not sure how much it cost us taxpayers, who obviously cannot watch the weather channel ourselves, to get these bogus warnings. So why am I complaining? The interruption shut off my DVR that was busy recording a very good Humphrey Bogart movie, but weren’t they all very good?

Ah- enjoying the sunshine and mild winter in Wyoming.

If it's any consolation, our weather forecasts are just as rubbish.
