i am getting pretty tired of all these let down with all the snow we are suposed to be getting but somehow it just disappears into some other dimension. now granted, yesterday cincy did get maybe an inch of light powder snow. too bad that's the crappiest kind, you can't do any thing with it. think about it, to pack snow balls or make a snow man or make anything in the snow you need the slightly wet heavier snow. when you get snow with the thick sheet of ice over it, you can do some of the best sledding ever, since you are basically sledding in a frictionless environment. also the snow underneath is the same wet snow that is good for packing. all you can do with this dry powder crap is sled, but thats sort of a problem when it doesn't even cover the grass on the hills. so basically this stuff is worthless except for making it Gawdawfully cold outside. how is it that we have so much technology in weather but unfortunately the people on the news are just technologically illiterate. but then that doesn't even make sense either because they hire people to look at the freakin' machines so all the guys reading the cue cards and gesticulating wildly at the map for no particular reason have to do is just that. it just like yuhgottabefrickinkiddingme, why don't they set the bar lower, so if on the off chance we get some damn snow everyone is pleasantly suprised. why don't they come on and say,"we might get snow tommorow, but probably not, we'll most likely get more crappy fog/rain, another great day in London! " that way people wouldn't get their hopes up and i wouldn't be bitching on an english class blog.
