Fair enough.  I am amazed at the extent and frequency of these surprise
snows, not that a little here and a little there starts to add up.  It just
seems that they've have materialized out of nowhere, especially as one
anxiously scans the interwebs for the smallest hint of a disturbance in the
force.  The post xmas storm is a great example.  Our forecast was for a
dusting to an inch -- we got 13 in Huntington.
