The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Drizzle, drizzle, fizzle

You want picturesque? Head northwest, where they got five and seven and nine inches of white and fluffy.

We got two in a hurry, and then the next ten or twelve bands fell as freezing drizzle, which makes for a lot more Maalox moments than Kodak. This system is supposed to move out today, but since none of the previous predictions were on the mark, I'm going to assume this one is wrong also.

It's just not fair...during my (second) tenure in OK (Enid, specifically) in 97/98, we received only a few dustings of snow -- 2 inches, max. Now that I'm in Montana, YOU guys get the white xmas, and we're bone-dry up here!

Where's the luck...?

Ask Enid. They supposedly got 12 inches. (Or they got six inches twice, or something.)

I'd prefer infinite instances of nothing.

Er, that's "iterations" rather than "instances".

I think the math works out similarly either way.
