|02:39 pm - an exercise in lack-of-forethought|
ME: What a nice day! Well, okay, it's not so nice, but it's better than it has been. I think I shall wear my light jacket to work today on account of it being nice. Kinda nice.
PEOPLE AT WORK: Oh hey did you hear all about the DEATH STORM 2005 that is headed our way tonight?
ME, IN LIGHT JACKET: Well, shit.
The walk home tonight is gonna be very cold.
So Yahoo weather has us getting between 8" and a foot of snow. Weather underground pegs it closer to 4" (specific for Somerville area). Mostly it will be rain, and not start until 7 to 9 tonight.
Who are we supposed to believe?
I should have been a meteorologist....
So much for DEATH STORM! The uncertainty of it all shouldn't surprise me; this is New England, after all, and it's officially Spring. I do know the storm's over Pennsylvania now, however. I've been dealing with Wilkes-Barre tow companies for 45 minutes now. I think they closed down I-81. It's ugly over there.

Well this is just great ....
I could have written this post, with only the following changes:
12:30 PM = 8 AM
light jacket = no jacket
The walk home tonight = Leaving Symphony Hall tonight
very cold = frigid and soggy
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Re: Well this is just great ....
Cool, it's like Rashomon, only with weather!
(Abbie would say hi, by the way, only he's too busy stockpiling batteries and milk and bread in the face of DEATH STORM 2005.)

Oh come on, you are surprised? We have snow every year till April!
A very moving little playlet. I'd love to play the jacket.
That always happens to me. If I wear something too light, Mother Nature sends in death storms. Too heavy, and I look stupid carrying it in warmth everyone else seemingly got personal phone calls about that morning. That's why I'm always in my leather jacket- it's just right.
