Blame it on the weatherPosted Wednesday, February 17, 2010, at 9:30 AM
I don't know about you, but I'm tired of snow.
For the past couple of weeks, it has been a daily occurrence for us at The Brazil Times to take time out to check with the National Weather Service.
The results? Weather advisories. Storm updates, etc., etc., etc.
Good grief. Suddenly, I feel like Charlie Brown trying so hard to catch Lucy off guard as she holds the football.
It seems I have come in to work practically every day for the past couple of weeks, checked the radar, looked at what was coming across regarding Clay County (weather-wise) and have also talked to meteorologists regarding weather updates.
Chance of snow.
Chance of flurries.
Again, good grief.
I came into work Wednesday and again, checked with what was coming across.
Here's a glimpse of the forecast for the remainder of the week:
* Thursday -- partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 30s. West winds 5-10 mph,
* Thursday night -- partly cloudy. Lows around 19. West winds up to 10 mph,
* Friday -- partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 30s. Southwest winds up to 5 mph,
* Friday night -- mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of snow (ugh!). Lows in the lower 20s,
* Saturday -- mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of snow (ugh!) and rain (double ugh!). Highs in the mid 30s,
* Saturday night and Sunday -- mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of snow (ugh!). Lows around 20. Highs in the lower 30s,
* Monday -- mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of snow (ugh!). Highs in the mid 30s, and
* Monday night and Tuesday -- partly cloudy. Lows around 19. Highs in the mid 30s.
There's simply too many "ughs!" in there. Five to be exact. But who's counting?
Of course, predicting and projecting weather patterns can't be easy. Much of this can and probably will change as the week progresses.
Dreary days -- much like we've experienced for eons now -- can bring one down. They have a tendency to just zap the energy right out of you.
I'd like to see the sun again.
Bring on warmer temperatures.
I don't know about all of you, but I'm ready for spring.
