March and Snow

Well, it is officially meteorological spring. And I am thinking about weather again. Well spring weather, that is. But here we go...winter hangs around. Another Tuesday snow storm. Great. We are trying to have a meeting with our AMS and talk about Dual Pol radar with Mike Zuranski. (7PM BIC 3504 at College of DuPage. The vent is open to all and free.) Last week, we had to cancel since the school cancelled classes. I know why they did. It was a nice gesture for people who had to travel through the rush hour in pretty decent snow. It really wasn't bad and not that dangerous. And by 10PM the roads were all pretty clear. But now, this Tuesday looks to be a little worse.

The NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch and are indicating possibly 8-10". If we cancelled with 3-4", I guess that means we will cancel with this as the time seems to be similar.Makes me think school should not have been cancelled last week as it will most likely need to be this week.

If we get 8" of snow, it will put us very close to normal on the year for snowfall. Considering we got nothing through most of January, well, let's just say we have had our share recently.

I miss last March. I need to go someplace warm.

Oh, and I have a new blog site with my personal and spiritual ponderings at Life of Paul. Check it out.
