Well, it is now March. That means we sat through December, January and February -- a period usually full of snowstorm possibilities and white fantasies -- and came out with nothing. Nodda. Ziltch. No Noreasters to speak of. One or two light events came through, but whatever snow they dropped didn't last for long.

So I think it is time to name this winter that never was. To dub on thee a moniker that will sum up our feelings for the disappointing few months that we just experienced.

And now, I'd like to take this moment to honor the Winter That Never Was, and to formally name it...

Here's a list of some of the many, many, many names that can be given to this year's December-February season:

"Winter"
Non-winter
Just a season
An interlude between fall and spring
Mega-Torch
A time of the year supposed to contain weather that is not rain and warm
Square root of negative 1
ERROR 404
Snow Dome Inc.

Trying to give the term "winter" to this season may result in the following:

Why would it be shut down? A lot of people come just for the snow but there's some of us (such as myself) that stick around through the rest of the year simply for the enjoyment of observing and forecasting any type of weather around, even if it's summer thunderstorms in 90 degree heat, which I'm starting to really hope for with the way this "winter" has been going.

Exactly - more like,

snowbirds dare then fly away, return then with the skies of gray
unto the threads the true geeks stay, and play among the weenies laugh.gif



As for winter - how about it was a "No-win"ter Situation.

July, July - your nights so sultry, your daylight fry
Preying Mantis, Firefly - lazy bees they bumble by
Songbirds wake 'fore rooster talks - serpent rests upon the rock
Sol does reign for most the clock - beat thy breast 'til August knocks. - Me
