Here vs. Back East, Part 3

We got an unexpected snowstorm today, and one which dumped 2 to 6 inches on us in the valley, depending where in the valley you were; here, we have what is known as "micro-weather." Driving was precarious, and listeners were upset that we didn't have this information; our weather forecasts from the TV station were still saying "a chance of snow showers."

But as is the case with much of our snow, it was all but gone by mid-afternoon. True, it was the light, powdery type, but it still didn't hang around long. I wouldn't be surprised to see folks out playing golf on Wednesday, if not tomorrow.
