Another Update That Is Not A Calendar Joke


That weird little heap of snow in front of the house across the street is gone, after only a full week of temperatures above freezing and three days that got into the 50s or 60s! Now let’s see what there is to look forward to next.

Hourly forecast for tomorrow, Thursday 03/01: Snow accumulating 1 to 3 inches during the day. About one inch of snow expected overnight. Plus some other weather.
Fortunately, it’s supposed to be a rain-and-snow mix with a lot of wind, so the weather’s going to make everybody happy.

Fortunately depending on which neighborhood station I check we’re up for between 1 and 3 and 3 and 5 and 2 and 6 inches, so there’s no reason to think that we’re going to get anything. I can not, at this point, rule out that come Friday morning there’ll be a heap, ten inches thick, of chicken feathers covering the neighborhood. Should be fun. I finally figured out how to get gas out of our new, modern-designed, extremely safe portable gas can to pour into the snowblower. No idea what it does with feathers, but I have a hypothesis.

      1. I’ll take your word on their pointiness, I was referring to the Sunday panel when she explained to CB that you can’t trust 3s because they keep turning on their tummies, pretending to be Ms Ns and Vs, or on their backs pretending to be Ws.

  1. I don’t know if its of any mathematical interest to you but in the 1/3/71 issue of The Florence Times Daily was a small item about some Tennessee scientists using the average size of a snow flake and the square footage of their state to figure that it would take 27,794,920,909,600,000 snowflakes to cover Tennessee with 10 inches of snow.

    1. This is certainly of interest to me! Thank you.

      I hope there’s a follow-up piece about them carrying out the project to see how close their estimate was to the actual count. (Wait, did we get this one already?''Blast it, Neil, this is why you’re supposed to take a Polaroid of each one as we mark it off!”)
