I haven’t been able to turn on the radio or television for the past couple of days without hearing about Super Storm Saturn, the Alberta Clipper that’s been bearing down through the Midwest on it’s track out to the Atlantic Ocean. It hit the Baltimore/ Washington area sometime this morning.
I woke up to what will hopefully be the last big, wet, sloppy, doggy kiss of this winter season. And I was not impressed. There was perhaps an inch of snow on the grass, and the roads were just wet. Some form of precipitation was oozing out of the clouds- could have been rain, could have been snow, could have been ice- but the drive in to work was as uneventful as normal.
Of course, every school was closed, and all of the non-essential- I mean, “Non-Emergency” government employees had the day off, too. What a scam.
