I am writing this about 4 am as it is sprinkling rain and about 40 degrees. But the forecast tweeted by WSB weather lady Karen Minton says 1" to 3" of snow coming. I just checked the calendar and it is December the 8th.
Now round about Metro Atlanta most of us who have lived here a while know that people panic when the weatherman uses the word SNOW. Many think that is it a plot several times a year the grocery stores use to clean off their shelves and it usually seems to work. But is the cry for snow for Atlanta for today a little premature? Is it just too early in the season to use the word SNOW?
Now I must confess I have seen flakes in the air prior to Christmas, but I do not ever remember a "Snow Jam" prior to Christmas events but right after Christmas you better watch out it is coming about every week to 10 days that the weather wizards start to include it in their forecast to boost their ratings. Is it just too early this year? Well we shall see in a few hours now won't we.
I will update this later .... If it snows?
