Let It Snow...Or Not

This is Day 13 of the 2018 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Let it snow (or not).

If you live in the South you understand this concept very well. If you're from the North and think it never snows here, it does. It is just not as predictable here. With modern technology and advanced forecasting, most weather sources will give a 10-day forecast. Unlike years ago, when we had one forecast which we either got in the morning paper or saw on the daily weather report on TV, we now have weather news that is updated 24/7. 

What that means is that the forecast fluctuates more than a politician's double-talk. What you read this morning may not be true by lunch time. So when you look at the long-range forecast and see the "S-word" (snow), don't start making or cancelling plans based on that. The snow will likely be in and out of the forecast many times before you actually get the snow...or not.

Snow is indeed in the forecast for the day of this post. By the time it is up, we will know whether we got snow or not.

Update: We got SNOW!

Santa, is that you?

  1. Hi Linda - quite snowy! Wonderful photos ... I'll be glad if it stays away here ... but they've got snow in Scotland too ... strange old weather - cheers Hilary

  2. Wow!! A wonderland, for sure. Enjoy! xoxo

  3. It was a beautiful day! We had probably 12 hours of snow total and 5-6 inches here. I thought Canada had lots of snow in the winter. I guess you're not that fond of snow.
