Snow!

Back when I was a little boy living in the Piedmont of NC, I was frequently disappointed when it didn’t snow.  It felt like many times that the reality fell far short of the forecast.  Any measurable snow in counties that don’t have many snowplows meant a day off.  I’d get so excited, argue that I didn’t need to do my homework, and then it didn’t snow much at all.  To be fair, the conditions have to be just right.   Anyway, I learned to subtract three inches from the forecast.  If the prediction was 1-3 inches of snow, that would be negative snow.  Anyway, this time the forecast was for 5-8 inches.   Then it actually snowed about 6 inches!  Wow.  Life is surprising!
