Global Warming Goes On Spring Break

Let's see, today is March 8, which means many good things. For instance, this evening (actually at 2 a.m. on Sunday) our clocks spring forward for daylight savings time, which hopefully translates into more play after work. And St. Patrick's Day is less than ten days away, or only six days if you are planning to celebrate early because of Holy Week. And, of course, Louisville will defeat Georgetown this afternoon to win the Big East Championship, a fitting beginning for March Madness.

All of these events would lead one arising from bed this morning to expect a bright, perhaps a little nippy, but definitely sunny and spring-like day. But no. The inconvenient truth as reported by the Courier-Journal is that:

The National Weather Service in Louisville says there is more snow coming. Today expect an additional 2 to 3 inches added to the approximately 8 to 10 inches already on the ground.

Oh well. Snow can be fun too. Enjoy!
