let it snow

It's no joke that Uglyhoma has been needing some precipitation. The fires aren't kidding around, and several of my coworkers reported fires within a mile of their home over the weekend.

I've been thinking that a gentle rain for a couple of days would be nice. A hard thunderstorm wouldn't be nice --- and would not make friends with the warm front we've had --- and tornadoes don't play well with others. So imagine my eureka when I noticed that it's snowing outside this morning.

There's about an inch and a half of the white stuff on my patio. The cars are coated, but it doesn't look like the parking lot is icy. And I can see the main drag from here, which doesn't appear to be icy either.

And there's a part of me that will always think that snow is exciting. We've turned on the school closings to relive the childlike hope that the city will be closed. No such luck.

Jebus, you guys are REALLY getting the short end of the stick, lately!

I know snow is another form of precipitation but I just don't imagine it being very helpful as far as the fires are concerned...
