The Sky is Falling!

The sky is falling!

Snow is predicted for Mobile, AL. It hasn't snowed here since 1996. The schools are closed. The talking heads have warned "stay home!" How many schools get Hurricane Days and Snow Days in the same academic year?

Um, it's raining now. Maybe it'll snow later. Maybe not. We'll see.

"We'll see" doesn't generate media attention. They can't say that. Not & keep their jobs. So they hedge a little. They give probabilities and generalities. So did Iben Browning. He predicted an earthquake. It didn't happen. He was derided as having predicted "the greatest non-event since 'Geraldo and the Vault.'" Dr. Browning died 7 months later of a heart attack. Probably brought on by derision.

Geraldo goes on. He doesn't expect anyone to take him seriously. He'll probably live to 100.

Chicken Little is going to stress himself into an early grave.

Stay tuned for photos if, indeed, we get the white stuff.

What are you going to do with your snow day today?

Edit: photo added. Haha. (You can see the snow in the air, really, can't you?)
