The high probability of snowman making.

                              The high probability of snowman making.

The other day I complained.
It is a full month into winter on the east coast.
I usually mark its welcoming with making a snowman.
This year with the explanation of El Nino we had record warm weather during the holidays.
The El Nino joy effect has shriveled like most of my deciduous plants.
Its cold,bitter, and windy.
And there is a storm on the horizon.
Forecasters were guessing yesterday but now they are confident enough to name it Jonas.
While Jonas is a large storm that will bring snowflakes to most on the mid-atlantic, the specifics are as varied as looking into a glass ball.
Words being used by the meteorologists are predictability, highly plausible,honing, varying, ranging, gaging, and exacting.
These words with complete graphics show shades of blue,grey, or red.
And don’t forget the European model.
Somehow they think that particular version is very accurate.
And so as I went around throughout the day first to the tire store to get a sensor checked, the phones started ringing.
The employee talked about how tire sales go up right before a snowstorm.
Thick treaded tires were what people wanted even though those kind of tires are best for mud not snow.
He suggested to most people all terrain tires but they usually ignore him because the thick treads look better.
Needless to say the customer is always right right?
Onto the grocery store and there you had slow movement panic.
Every checkout register was discussing the possibilities of the storm.
I could hear the floor manager asking every coworker she passed if they could work a few extra hours on friday.
Much like anything whether it be a storm, the stock market, or other predictions that is not exacting emotions get involved.
Stay the course or rearrange your schedule.
The forecasters could be wrong but mother nature is always right.
You can’t predict much and even with all the models and technology there is still guessing of varying degrees.
Is there a high probability of snowman making?
Judging by the european model there is a high plausibility a snowman will be made varying in size.
