I Miss “Al Gore Spring”

What happened to our “Al Gore Spring“? One week it’s warm and sunny in January (yea!), and this week we have bone chilling cold (boo!) in February. To top it off, today the National Weather Service issued this advisory for the DC metro area today:

EXPECT SNOW TO DEVELOP IN THE LATE EVENING AND THEN MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO RAIN AND FREEZING RAIN. EXPECT ONE OR TWO INCHES OF ACCUMULATION AND THEN SOME ICING ON TOP DURING THE NIGHT TONIGHT.

Or in DC-speak, that means we’re gonna have a day of “wintery mix” where everyone looses their mind and there are panic runs on salt and shovels.

I don’t know about you, but I like the whole Global Warming thing if it means less AccuWeather forecasts that look like this.

    When is the mix “wintery” and when is it “wintry?” Both are used, but only the former makes sense.

    When Wayan posts with a fever, chills, and way too many pharmaceuticals clouding his brain.

    Both are correct and can be used interchangeably.
