Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful

If you’re reading this and you’re just north of the Florida border, would you take a spoon or a measuring cup or a bucket–something–and just walk across the state line and dump it. I don’t want The Sunshine State to feel left out.

Yesterday, we learned that 49 out of 50 states had snow on the ground. When I heard this news, I guessed Hawaii as the lone hold-out. But those high volcanic peaks usually have snow on them whether we are experiencing a phenomenon like this or not. No, it’s Florida. Is this unusual? “Extremely unusual,” says CNN meteorologist Angela Fritz. The last time this happened was 1977. Oddly enough, it was South Carolina playing the part of outlier that year.  But, today, people who only see snow on TV are playing in it. Snowball fights at the University of Southern Mississippi, flights postponed in Atlanta, Louisiana hardware stores selling out of snow supplies. LOUISIANA!!  It’s truly unbelievable.  As much as 69% of this country was covered in the white stuff. The average depth: a robust 8 inches. That’s some snow job.
