Its a standing joke around Portland Oregon that when a snowflake is seen
at the Whistler ski resort
north of Vancouver, B.C., the entire PDX metro area shuts down,
canclling schols until July.
The local tv stations compete to out do each other with Cassandra
inspired predictions of weather catastrophies which never ocurr.
Ya got that right! Just went through it last week end. Starting
Tuesday they were hyping the big storm coming with up to 5" of snow
starting Sat evening. By Thurdsday they were down to the "WINTER
STORM WARNING, RUN! HIDE!" and kept up the fever pitch through the
evening news on Sat with nothign happening except a few flurries.
Late news at 11 they were toning it down. First words on the morning
news Sun morning "It tapered off about midnight".
Hey dummies, it didn't taper off, it never started.
Not to mention that a 5" snowfall back when would only get a minor
mention in the news.
