We’ve enjoyed a very mild winter and it feels like we may be headed in the right direction.
And I always enjoy comparing what the forecasters predicted with what actually happened.
Prediction: I posted this pic from a USAToday blurb on 10/5/11.
Actual: Forget Waldo. Across much of the USA the past three months, it was “where’s winter? This is the opening tease from a 3/1/12 article in USAToday that recapped the winter that wasn’t.
No complaints on this end!
It took its sweet time but it made a grand entrance nonetheless…

Admittedly, most of the weather posts at this wee little blog are not flattering. Frigid temps, blizzard conditions, and salty roads just don’t bring out the inner Joel Osteen in me. However, as I type these words from the spanking new Panera Bread [5.2 miles from my apartment!] on this 7th day of 2012, the sun is shining brightly, the temperature is 33º and climbing, and the 10-day forecast looks like this…
I guess the doomsayers were wrong! And, for that, I’m grateful. And for this…
Just grateful for the late arrival…
Can’t wait for these prophetic ‘highlights’ to play out.
There are very few days I don’t think about Texas and miss it. But here’s one: when the high temp at my current zip code is 2 degrees cooler than the overnight low at my former.
And there is no need to state the obvious…I am fully aware of the bitter reversal just ahead.
To my Texas brethren: This is not an in-your-face “hahahahahaha” but rather a pilgrim enjoying a seasonal perk before the harsh reality that is November-March makes its annual debut.
