Here we go again…
We here about a winter storm for a week before it arrives and almost always the storm is not that impressive. In this case, I am paying attention to the coverage and to be honest, they are not saying we are going to get that much snow. I’ve not heard a single report of very high amounts though the coverage is quite extensive. Maybe most of the hype we have is not really that bad but it is the viewer that is making it out to be worse than it really is. While we have been hearing about this an incredible amount of coverage, the highest amount of snow that I’ve seen reported was 2 to 4 inches.
I guess I need to give the local meteorologists a break and acknowledge that they are really not over hyping it in terms of it being that bad. Maybe we are hearing what we want to hear. Maybe we are wanting a lot of snow and so that is what we hear. In any way, I am looking forward to a nice snow storm.
If you look at this picture, you can see the KFOR Forecast this morning, December 4, 2013. The most profound thing on this forecast is the temperatures. If we do reach zero degrees, it will be the first time in many years that we have done it. We’ll see. On the bright side, if we do, maybe it will reduce the bug population this next year.
In this picture, KWTV does not show it getting quite as cold but still in the single digits.
In this picture you get KOCO’s forecast for the same day. I guess when it is all done we can look back and see who was being more realistic. In either case, I am ready for some snow. This year was very bad for spiders and scorpions, at least at my house. I am going to try to have a positive attitude about the whole thing and hope for the best.
