Something I’ve learned over the last 11 years of living in Colorado is how to gauge the weatherperson’s reports. Does “a chance of snow” mean it’s just going to be a dusting, or just make folks run out and stock up on milk?
Here’s the one I’ve been hearing this morning, and on last night’s weather report:
There’s snow coming for Thursday. We think it’s going to be significant, but won’t know until the weather system we’re following actually hits land. Stay tuned.
If they’re following a weather system in the Pacific, and it’s looking like significant snow four days out… Um, maybe it’s just me, but I’m thinking I’d better stock up on milk.
