Happy President's Day Saturday... Richmond Virginia's weather has to be the most difficult to forecast in the nation. In the past several weeks, we have had snow, sleet, freezing rain (I think), and temps ranging from the 20's to the 70's. No where else can you be scraping snow and ice of the windshield of your car in the morning, and be driving the same car, on the same streets, that afternoon with the convertible top down.
My cousin is a meteorologist and I am quite jealous of his career choice... I mean, in what other job can you be Wrong more than half the time and still get a raise and a promotion. Unfortunately he works here in the Richmond area where, like most of his counterparts, the half wrong rule applies in spades.
In my next life I think I will be a weatherman in South Florida. I lived there for almost 30 years and the weather forecast was always the same "Partly cloudy, muggy and warm, with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms" I think all the meteorologists in Miami have that phrase tatooed to the inside of their eyelids.
Unfortunately, I sell furniture for a living (don't get me wrong I love what I do) and this weekend is always very busy. I just hope today's weather doesn't keep all the people away. I think there is still milk and bread available at Ukrops, so the competition may be tough...
