Oh, heck!

Woke up this morning to 22 degrees and an unexpected new 2 inches of snow on the ground. I say it was "unexpected" because the forecast didn't show anything until late tonight and when I went outside at 8 PM last night there were only a few scattered clouds along with a very visible Jupiter over in the western sky. Still, here it is. According to the radar on, it slid in from the southwest as part of a very patchy cover from the most recent Alberta Clipper. The one that was supposed to stay too far to the south of us to have any effect. HA!

I guess I'll be getting some more exercise today. Oh well, I need the workout anyway. Just so long as my back and/or knees don't rebel. My daughter, Jessica, is supposed to be coming out from NJ for a few days so the driveway must be cleaned. Terry's got a club meeting this morning so I'll be working solo. Think I'll give it until 9 or 9:30 AM before I get out there. Maybe it will stop snowing by then. AccuHunch says the sun will come out...Sunday.

We will have your sun, today. I'd rather have the snow, but I'd also bet you're tired of hearing me complain about the lack thereof.

If I could get the jetstream to blow from east to west instead of west to east so as to deliver unto you more snow, I would do it. However, that might require getting the earth to spin clockwise on its axis instead of counter clockwise (as seen from above the North Pole) and accomplishing that task is a wee bit above my pay grade.
