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.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
