Apparently some people listen to news forecasters with entirely too much credulousness. All schools on Cape Cod were canceled today because of snow conditions. It began snowing lightly about 10:00 a.m. but none of it stuck because the temperature had soared all the way to 35 degrees. Throughout the entire non-school day there was absolutely no snow accumulation.
About 4:30 it began to stick and perhaps we'll get 3 or 5 inches over night. This may or may not be deemed reason for a snow day tomorrow. Very likely the majority of it will be cleared and all roads passable by the end of the day. Yes, a huge storm hit Washington, D.C. but that' 400 miles south. Well, it's winter and people get nervous. It all seems laughable to me. I think we have entirely too much news, much of it is not news at all but conjecture -- as, indeed, most weather predictions are.
However, white is prettier, while it lasts, than dirty brown grass and barren trees. I don't mind if it's all white when I wake up tomorrow.
