My Weatherman isn't so funny after all!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I wrote this morning that my weatherman was funny.  He was trying to tell me that we were getting 6+ inches of snow today.

I laughed.  After all it is April 22nd.  Even for Minnesota this much snow is way out of line for this time of year!

 

It looked like this this morning...

Sun was out and the snow was melting.  There is no way it is going to snow this evening.

 

This is what it looked like at 7 pm!  Snowing hard and the wind is picking up.

It is now 8 pm and we have over an inch and the weatherman is laughing..."This is just the start of it!"  He chuckled.

Some things just are not that funny!

Lesson learned ... Never laugh at the weatherman...:)  Sure wish we had some of that white, cold, wet stuff hitting us.  Bone dry and in dire need of moisture.

We are expierencing climate change due to someone's intervention in our lives. There is nothing we want to do about it so we will just have to live with it & see where it takes us

Well. well, well. I guess next time that you're just going to have to put more faith in that weatherman!

Ha! The temperature here yesterday was 69 degrees and we are expecting snow tonight. Not sure that the weatherman had any input into that decision though; Mother Nature calls the shots!

Bill, so when all else fails, build a snowman.  Put a sign around its neck calling it "The Weatherman"... and then you can throw snowballs at it.

By the way... it was in the 70's here in Fort Worth today.  No snowmen here... LOL.

Or you could always just settle in, order a pizza or two, and watch the movie Groundhog Day.

Bill, as much as I miss snow I do know that sometimes enough is enough.  By the way I just met a gentleman from up Minnesota way!

Well, at least you got some sunshine this morning. We've got the sun, but still freezing at night and cold wind in the daytime. Our sunshine is a tease. Kind of like seeing a fire across the room and going to get warm - only to find it's a flickering light behind red celophane.

Oh, Bill...I feel for you. The Midwest doesn't need any more moisture. I wish you could send it back out west where it is needed.

It's cloudy and is spitting snow this morning. I don't think this is going to stay around all day, though. I'll be in one of the larger towns to the south of me, and I'm planning to stop at the greenhouse for a few more tomato and herb plants. There's some irony in that. But if I don't get them NOW, they will be picked over later.

Bill -- at least it is snowing and not pouring rain to add to the overfull streams.  The snow melting will be a bit slower on the adding to the streamflow.
