2/26 EVENING UPDATE:
"Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton, old times there are not forgotten... look away... look away,
look away Dixieland."

- Ballad of the old South from the Civil War

If you were in Dixieland right now, you'd be digging out from 6-12 inches of sloppy wet snow between Nashville, TN and Raleigh, NC. By Monday their temperatures will top 70 F, how about that for a reversal of fortunes?

Here's the conversation that would probably take place were one of you to call me right now about the weather....

SO COME ON NOW, YOU CAN SAY IT, YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO ADMIT IT...

Admit what?

THAT WINTER IS OVER AND THERE'S NO MORE SNOWDAYS OUT THERE FOR US

Any more snow days? Is that all you care about?

BASICALLY, YEAH.

Well then, I guess I'll have to just go ahead and say it. You realize I might jinx it by saying anything. Besides I haven't checked with the fruit cup.

WELL DO THAT TOMORROW WITH THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENT. AFTER ALL, IT IS FRIDAY.


Thanks for the suggestion. I think I can make these calls on my own without the fruit cup...

DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE "PRETEND" CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE YOU'VE NEVER MET?


After having a full week of school for the first time in like, 7 weeks, I am feeling a bit crazy.

OOOKAY THEN, YOU NEED TO GET OUT MORE. HOW ABOUT THE FORECAST....?

1. There will be one more snow event for the I-95 corridor between now and April 1. It will not be enough to close schools, but it could squeak out a delay. It will not be more than a couple inches at most.

2. Central PA will see at least two more medium-sized snow events before wrapping up the winter. Medium for them is 3-6" which is a regional crisis for us.

3. March is going to see-saw all over the place. At some point during the month we might touch 20 F and 70 F in the space of one week. I just have that feeling.

4. April will deliver a super-quick warmup early in the month, followed by another reinforcing shot of cold air middle of the month.

And finally, I promise the sun will come out tomorrow, thanks to Annie. Ha, get it.. Annie. Well, I tried.
