G'day everyone!

I've been a member of WU for over a year now and for the most part am a lurker. I do post from time to time but not being a weather expert by any stretch of the means, I depend on you guys to explain it all and it's a fine job you do! While sitting here reading the blog, occasionally something is said that can be extremely funny, thought provoking, etc. and I think to myself, "Those words are going to be lost forever unless someone captures them." Well, here it is.

Please feel free to add things you might see!

Just thought I'd give it a go. Let me know what you think!

Twas the night before Snowquester and all through the land,
the snow lovers were giddy and rubbing their hands.
Snowblowers and shovels were nestled in the garage,
snow was finally coming, this was not a mirage.

The children were ready for a day off of school
so they ignored their homework, their bedtimes and rules.
And I in my Mukluks and mamma in her Uggs
fretted a day cooped up with kids, best treated with drugs.

Four Aleve, One Xanax and two Ambiens ago,
I woke up at midnight and what do you know?
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
tore open the shutters and broke the damn sash.

The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,
gave the lustre of mid-day to, wait...

It’s been two lonely years without my pale friend,
it’s been a long road but it’s back here again.
Overjoyed I high-fived a squirrel in a tree,
Did I take two Ambien, or was it actually three?

Asleep once again my worries melted away,
Snow had found us again and it was here to stay.
Filled with joy in the morning, our snow angst had parted,
there’s an inch on the ground, but it’s yet to get started!

The storm’s ramping up, there’s much more coming you see,
said my best friends in blogland, CWG.
Could it be, yes indeed, our snow desert would end,
exceeding two inches is a safe bet my friends.

I pored over maps, the dynamics were there,
it’s 38 down here but up there there’s cold air.
The rapidly falling precipitation would bring
a speedbump in our dismal, forced march into spring.

Alas as we waited, and waited some more,
rain’s all that was falling, promising snow nevermore.
With gloating flowing in from our friends in the west,
where the inches of powder were piling up best.

Sleds, boots and shovels sat waiting, the snow was no more,
you burned us again, damn I-95 corridor!
With heads down and tails tucked we gave up our fight,
Jim Cantore is gone, caught the 3:30 flight.

And I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he flew away from me,
Snow’s not your thing DC, but you got RGIII. "

Report on Crow Kills.
Well, it is not a pretty story.... about 200 dead crows near Boston, and there
was concern for Avian Flu. They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains
of all the crows, and he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu,
to everyone's relief. However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been
killed by impact with trucks, and only 2% were killed by car impact. The city
then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine the disproportionate
percentages for truck versus car kill. The Ornithological Behaviourist determined
the cause in short order. When crows eat road kill, they always post a
"look-out crow" in a nearby tree, to warn of impending danger.
His conclusion was that the lookout crow could say "Cah", but he could
not say "Truck”.

Quoting oakland:
Badmonkey's post is the best thing I've read in a long time and....... every word is true! LOL

Thank you for posting it here and keeping it safe. It should be pulled out about once a month or so just to make people smile.

You're so welcome! Let's face it, there are wonderfully clever and very witty people on the blog and I'm sure there will be more entries added as time goes on.

The reason I started this blog was for this comment made this morning:

After years of lurking, I finally realized how it is you know that you've been lurking on the blog a little too long in one sitting.

1. You wore out your F5 key.
2. You understand Taz on first reading.
3. The Tampa shield doesn't sound like a minor league sports team's name.
4. You read Aussie's posts with an accent.
5. You know (and care) that Pat's dog had puppies.
6. You can define a westcaster, floridacaster, upcaster and downcaster... with examples.
7. You know that, when it comes to hurricanes, sometimes science is an art.
8. You randomly crave Fresca.
9. Jim Cantore causes you physical pain when he is on TV.
10. You root for a thunderstorm of the CV islands to become a hurricane then you try to steer into open ocean it by sheer force of will.
11. You.stop.noticing.dots.between.words.
12. You find yourself genuinely hoping that people you've never met get through the storm safely.

Thanks to everyone who posts the "good stuff". To everyone affected.. be safe, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Returning to lurking."
