I know much of the East Coast has been bombarded by repeated blizzards. It’s been a record year for much of the country, and I acknowledge their plight before I complain of my own. With that disclaimer, let me tell you what a weird year it’s been in Louisiana!
I’ve been a resident, other than some company assignments in other states, since 1974. In that time I’ve seen maybe four light snowfalls. They have always been an occasion of much wonder and surprise for the locals. This winter we have already had two measurable snowfalls . One began on the evening of my great-granddaughter’s birth, and I am certain she will always be told of that event. So you can imagine my surprise when my Weather Bug started chirping today with a winter storm warning for Thursday through Friday…measurable snow and sleet!
When the Saints won the Superbowl, the headlines here were “No, hell has not frozen over!” One would wonder if the journalists thoroughly checked their sources on this one.
