OMG, Winter really DOES Exist!March 2, 2009
Up until a few hours ago today, the three of us had grave doubts as to the existence of winter this year. Why, you may wonder? Well, simply put, there hadn’t been any episodes of snow to speak of, except for that one time in the beginning of the Spring 2009 semester that it snowed about 3 inches and class was cancelled twice in a row; once for the whole day and then until noon the following day. THAT really screwed up our routine. But about three hours ago, the snow started coming down, and about one hour ago, it really picked up. We might get between five to eight inches of snow, when all is said and done. But we still think this winter has been pretty lame, to say the least. Freakin’ global warming crap! I know that in Maryland it’s not supposed to snow like it does in New England, but STILL! The mid-Atlantic region should be getting at least two feet of snow per winter season, if not more. Any meteorologists (professional, amateur, or just weather junkies in general, please correct me if I’m wrong.)
I hate lame winters; we all do. The weather here in our part of the world is extremely boring for the rest of the year, so can’t we at least expect a few good snows during winter?
Sheesh! I guess we really *can’t* have our cake and eat it too. Especially not during Great Lent…..(this isn’t meant to be some kind of diss against my religion, it just happens to be the beginning of Lent and I’m trying to be somewhat funny here)
