Saw a great quote in today’s Times Dispatch from NWS meteorologist Tim Gingrich, when being quizzed by the reporter about our recent weather: His take on things… “It’s January, and it’s cold”, “It’s winter”
Words of common sense, for sure. Temperatures here lately have certainly been cold, but far from extreme for Virginia for this time of year.
Plus, now with the mention of a skiff of snow in the forecast for late Thursday, you would think a blizzard is coming based on some of the chatter I’ve seen on the web.
Maybe it’s time for all of us to step back for a minute and put things in perspective.
