Weather Blogs

– Posted in: Recommended Links, Weather

WeatherUnderground has provided space for weather nuts to blog about their interest for a while now, but recently they started featuring blogs authored by real meteorologists. I’ve been following Eastern And Midwestern U.S. Winter Weather Blog and really enjoying the peek behind the curtain. Turns out the weathermen aren’t always so certain of the forecast they release to the general public, because there’s conflict between the various computer-generated models or because there are variables that can’t be predicted. Of course, there’s a lot of jargon that goes right over my head, but I understand enough to get the general point they’re trying to make.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
