Am I Weird?

A major snow storm has hit the Great Lakes region. I was up from 3:00 - 3:45 last night with the baby, so I turned on the TV and was watching the overnight newscast on ABC. In the corner of the screen was the Blizzard Warnings by county (I don't think I've ever seen a blizzard warning, by the way). Anyway, all of the counties around ours were listed, except ours. Am I weird that I felt kind of left out? This morning, we don't have inches and inches of snow - we just have wind and cold temps. If it is blizzarding all around me, I think I want the blizzard too. Am I weird?

Answer to 1st question: Yes, you are wierd.

Does this have anything to do with wanting to be in a blizzard? No, you've been wierd for a long time.

Is this what most people love about you? Yes, your wierdness is charming and appealing, as someone used to say, "strangely pleasurable".

On a more technical note, a blizzard has more to do with wind speed than snow accumulations. Kind of like a hurricane rating, blizzard conditions are reached at certain wind speeds and visibility conditions.

You know a lot of stuff ... about my weirdness and meterology.

Dare I say 1st hand experience on both?

I actually learned about the blizzard requirements one winter in Alma when we had one and the local weather people explained all the details.

I am often a wealth of useless information.

Work is slow today, so keep posting stuff. Did you see my post on the PTR blog on the Emergent Church string?

You may be weird, but you can count me weird as well. I take delight in storms.

There is something comforting about being at home while a storm rages all around on the outside.
