PANIC at the sign of a snowflake

It was an interesting weather weekend. On Friday the weatherpeople began nonstop coverage of snow heading our way. The prediction - 2 inches. They would break in to TV programs every 30 minutes to give an update, it was crazy. By Saturday the expected temperature drop (to the 20's) did not happen so instead it rained most of the day. The weatherman's comment on Saturday was "beware of dangerously low temps" - the prediction - 18 degrees. Apparently they have never been to a northern state where it stays in these "dangerously low temps" for months! On Sunday, though we did not get the projected snow, there was concern of all the rain turning to ice. So our church ended up canceling their services just to be on the safe side that people didn't get stuck out on icy roads. So the whole weekend was a bit humorous. The sad thing? I really wanted snow and we didn't get it! We did get some flurries, but nothing that stuck on the ground. Our car shows all the snow that came for us!
