Soundtrack in my head: The Telescopes, “Celeste”
How bad is the weather in Wisconsin? The weather is so bad in Wisconsin that even the local Doppler radar decides it wants to go a to warmer climate. I kid you not.
I was online yesterday during our nasty freezing rain/snowstorm. (For those of you not in Madison, it was so bad that the Madison Metro stopped running its buses after 8:30 a.m.) Anyway, I have this widget program that shows the Doppler radar for the state, and so all I have to do is click on it and it will show me a map of Wisconsin and parts of surrounding states, and show what weather systems are coming through.
Most of yesterday, it was showing Wisconsin engulfed in bands of green, pink and blue, signifying rain, freezing rain and snow, and it just kept coming and coming and coming. Then later in the day, I clicked on it again, and to my amazement it showed this:
If you look closely, you’ll see that the image still says “Wisconsin Doppler!” However, the image is not of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest, but Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. It’s not like there’s any menu that lets you see other parts of the country.
It’s almost as the Wisconsin Doppler radar said, “You really DON’T want to know how bad the weather in Wisconsin is right now, so I’m going to show you Louisiana instead.” Or it was saying, “The heck with it! I’ve had enough of this bad weather! I’m moving south!”
Lacey, I think I can see you thumbing your nose at me from Houston.
