Bill Meck's Dream Come True
I realize that title is lost on any of you that don't watch the Lexington news. We have a very excitable weatherman who, pardon my terminology, "gets off" on any form of severe weather. He has made no effort to hide the fact that he loves snow and probably prays for snow, thus negating those of us praying for the snow to miss us. A coworker of mine saw on channel 18's website that he was forecasting 10 inches of snow before this front was said and done. Pa-leese! Note that the other channels ranged from 1-3 inches. Hmm. While we didn't get the 10 inches of snow, we did get a lovely coating of ice. Colin and I looked out the window this morning so that I could show him the dusting of snow and the coat of ice. His response, "Brrrr". You got that right kiddo! Of course I couldn't pass up the chance to whip out my new camera and snap away (I wasn't brave enough to actually go outside so these aren't quite as clear as they could be). At one point Wes told Colin that I was staring out the window at who knows what. No, I was just trying to capture the ice on the trees in the right light. Geesh, no appreciation for fine photography.
