The 2008/2009 season shall hereafter be known as "the winter that just kept giving". On Monday they were tracking a system that was expected to bring us "scattered flurries". By yesterday they were saying that it could drop "up to 5cm" on us. This morning we went outside to well over 10cm of snow - and now they are calling for another 5cm today. If this 5cm is anything like the scattered flurries we were supposed to get then we could be in for trouble.
Last week I was debating if I should burn off the last of the gas in the snow blower and put it away for the season. My Magic 9-Ball1 says "probably good that you didn't."
I haven't seen as many sites pulling their usual April 1st pranks this year, and most of the ones that I have seen lack subtlety. For example, the "Warner Brothers Purchases The Pirate Bay" headline on one of the news gathering sites I read was cute, but pretty obvious.
1 It's like a Magic 8-Ball, but when shaken it simply states the patently obvious.
