Cancel that Blizzard

It's still snowing here in Brookings, but thankfully its not blizzard conditions. We will probably get 4 to 6 inches and not the 6 to 11+ they were predicting last night.

For my readers out of state (and out of the country), if you want to know what the weather is in Brookings and South Dakota, the Brookings Ham Radio club has a website that has massive weather data that can be found here. It's hooked up to the Elmer and all sorts of weather Doppler.

Luckily, I don't have TV so I won't get interrupted every 2 seconds with weather updates telling me the obvious.

They told of a forthcoming blizzard down here in Oklahoma last Friday, telling about feet of snow destined to fall. Well I dont think we got an inch. How about throwing out the weathermen with the same group as astrologers and the like. haha

It was really bizarre here. Some places within a 40 minute drive got almost a foot, and Brookings got about an inch.

They canceled school here for no reason, and kids were out riding bikes and stuff. It was kind of funny actually.
