I don’t pay much attention to weather forecasts. Whatever the prediction the weather is what it is. But sometimes a forecast jumps up and shouts in one’s face. Like tonight, when I heard that a “monster storm’ with a track 2100 miles long is projected to bring blizzard conditions from the Great Plains to New England, dropping 21 inches of snow in the Boston area before tomorrow night, followed by sleet and freezing rain. The last I heard about this storm, from my builder friend John who does pay attention to weather forecasts because they directly affect his business, it called for 3-6 inches of snow. Not nothing, but not a monster. What happened between 7 am and 6:30 pm today?
I’m ready. The back spasms caused by shoveling last week’s snow are almost gone, and I can bend over the sink to brush my teeth without supporting my torso. Who needs the gym?
