“The snow day that wasn’t”
This is a story about Jackson Mississippia a town down south, where the phenomenon of snow was always a cause for celebration. With yesterdays forcast for snow schools closed, business slowed down, the transportation department sent some employees home so they could come back later to work a night shift, spreading salt and slag on the bridges and overpasses to keep them safe. Travelers were warned to stay off the roadways if possible as we perepared to get slapped by the so called “Polar Vortex”. This mighty rushing cold wind from the frigid north. more at home in the Chicago area was coming to visit and it was bringing snow! or so we were told. Many people got up this morning looking for an inch or two of snow only to be disappointed by a light dusting of the stuff. They had gased up cars, made trips to the grocery store and prepared for a snow day that didn’t come. There’s nothing wrong with a day off from work but snow days are special, You drink hot chocolate, cook up pots of soup or chilli and wonder how long it’s going to last. But not today! sunshine and warming temperatures will soon wipe away the last signs of the the snow day that wasn’t, There are a couple of weather people out there I want to have a word with.
