I was just kidding about suing them, weather forecast were often inaccurate as far as Michigan is concerned.  The only way it'd be accurate is if they predicted every day as between -20F and 110F, maybe sunny, maybe cloudy, maybe rain, maybe snow, and maybe windy.

Today more snow. Predicted 3-5 inches here. Actual: about 1/4 inch.

Here in AZ, they just say "sunny & hot" everyday. Once in a great while they are wrong, but we crave that so much that we forgive them.
I'm not disparaging the differently abled. It's just that thirty years of community college has literally made me mentally retarded.

One day I went to work starting out dry and sunny then crossed a line of rain. The edge went through town so half the town had rain and half did not. Damned either way I guess.

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.

How's the almost two feet of snow feeling, travis?
A creaking creeping shadow
stiff against the freezing fog
glares at a tickless watch.

Time has failed him -- all things shall pass.

In the past, that ground wouldn't thaw till Easter. But there IS no global warming of course. It's all local.

Looks like we might be heading for a global cool down next 50 years due to the solar minimum....
