Hmmm . . . It’s About Our Meteorologist

December 23, 2009

In the earlier post I said the sun was out and in a couple of hours, the snow would be mud; that we wouldn’t have a white Christmas.  I based that prediction, at least in part, on the weather forecast.  I’ve told you about our weather guy before — not bad to look at, but hasn’t a clue about our weather. So, here’s what’s happened.  I went downtown to interview some witnesses.  When I came out of the police station, it started to snow.  Two hours later, it’s still snowing.  I made poor Chase sit in the snow while I took photos.  Long suffering dog!

Let it snow 12-23-09

Someone will come rescue me 12-23-09

Can we go inside now 12-23-09

The sun could still come out, turn everything to mud, it will freeze tonight, and tomorrow will be treacherous without the beauty of the snow.  We’re not going to think that way — we’re dreaming of a white Christmas.

    Tell Chase to “toughen up”! Wisconsin Cardi’s sit in the snow for fun. The beg to go out to play when there is snow on the ground. Hope you get your white Christmas and all of its blessings.

    Ha! Now you can tell if you have a white, aka clean, dog!

    Merry Christmas to all of you!

  3. In that case I take back the whole “mud Christmas” thing!

    Everyone has had snow but me!! I am so jealous!

    Yes, although truncated you will now experience the seasons of Iowa–winter, mud, summer and mud! Enjoy and how I do hope you have a white Christmas!
