Q: What will be the most interesting weather phenomena we will see in the next week?
A: Fog. Yep. Fog. Not that fog isn’t interesting, mind you. I mean, who doesn’t want to walk inside clouds? Cartoon characters do it all the time, and they seem to be enjoying themselves. And it’s not to say that there isn’t more interesting weather somewhere else. Just ask someone in Colorado or Kansas what their most interesting weather will be today, and they may make some sort of snarky blizzard comment while they scowl their eyes at you. As for us, the groundhog may think we’re getting six more weeks of winter, but to have more winter, you need to have had winter to start with, right? As for our remaining snow, goodbye, we hardly knew ye.
