I know it’s unfair to compare how Marylanders handle weather versus Massachusetts natives, but it amuses me nonetheless. Here’s an example. This is the current weather forecast here from NOAA (it’s the same for tonight):
Periods of rain and sleet. High near 32. East wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Total daytime sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
I just got a broadcast message from Loyola stating that they are closing at 3pm and the shuttle service will stop running at 4:30pm. I know that sleet is one of those iffy things — if the temps drop, the roads will be nasty, and they don’t really have the equipment here to deal with that the way Massachusetts cities & towns do.
Anyway, I just wanted to share. It’s slightly better than del.icio.us links, right?
