February Weather

This was a rather amusing day, and all due to the weather. Or the forecasting of the weather.

At home, when the meteorologist hugely misses a forecast, it may go something like this.

Tomorrow expect snow accumulation of less than half-inch.

And on the morrow we get winds of 50 mph, ten inches of snow and drifts five feet high.

That is a miss.

Here in the Rio Grande Valley, yesterday's forecast, for today went like this.

Cloud cover until about noon with a high of 94 by four p.m.

Today, the cloud cover did not break and the high for the day was 84.

Now that is a miss.

But meteorology is a tough business in some parts of the country.
