And Winter Came (Sort Of)
November 26, 2010
All right, hands up all of you who are sad we didn’t get that snow the Almanac said we would at the start of this week. Anyone? Anyone? Didn’t think so... Well, the snow might not have showed up, but the cold certainly seemed to have arrived and brought sunshine with it on some days, cold rain on others. Sunny cold days… the days you look out the window, think it’s going to be beautiful, and then you look at the temperature. Unless, we’re talking about those near 70 degree days we had last week.
Now it’s sunny and cold – although the almanac seems to refer to this weather as "mild", which I’ve decided IS almanac speak for colder than cool. Although, it makes me wonder if there were no flurries when they said we were going to have them – and I checked, not even that sliver of South Dakota that’s counted at the Heartland got any – does the Almanac leave us open to freak snow storms?
I’d say that’s an adventure to look at in January.
