Did he not see his shadow, or does he need glasses?
Some eastern rodent, called Phil, made his annual media jaunt recently in predicting an early Spring. Seemed like something that I might understand considering we had the previous month with maxima below freezing. Heavy snow just sat there waiting for an upward climb in warmth before offering any melt.
We are only weeks away from the calendar start of Spring. Perhaps Phil should have taken more than the presence or absence of his shadow into account when determining seasonal change for the nation.
My outlook is onto falling snow, and with the promise of more snow. Forecasters suggested 1 - 3 inches. Perhaps they use pixie rules. So I might assume their overnight prediction of three inches may be really another foot. And their "30 degrees; feels like 20"... Do they really do their forecasting outdoors, in short sleeves?
Here in Utah we face the conundrum of winter weary locals and ecstatic visitors craving the "Greatest Snow on Earth".
A little sunshine mixed with the snow here in Sandy Utah, and our Vitamin D balance will soon be restored.
