Well, it's the weekend. Do you know why I know it is? More snow is in my forecast. I'm listening this morning and Mr. Weatherman is telling me that we're going to be experiencing a 'weather event' Saturday night into Sunday. Really? A weather event? Why not just drop it on me that my snowblower better be back in the garage, because it looks like another 3-6 inches is headed my way. And what's the deal with the 'American model' as opposed to the 'European model'? When did these opposing terms come into play in my life? For the last three weekends, we've endured winter storms of one magnitude or another and for the life of 'em, the weather dudes and dudettes, that I watch on my telly, can seem to figure out what model we're getting. One is always harsher and stronger than the other, but they can never get it straight. Which one is entering my life over the next 6-10 hours? Get me a model I can live with! I guess it's time to set the record straight with NOAA, the National Weather Service. Listen buddy, there's only one model I want in my life and I think you know who it is. Give me the German-borm, ever dangerous Heidi Klum in all her fury!
Now that's a storm I could endure! I think...
By the way, don't get me going on the weather service's new fun activity: naming snowstorms! This one is called "Q". What's this all about?
