Sorry about all the snow …

Dear Central New York Residents,

I would like to apologize for all of the snow that we have received over the past week. Its my fault. I jinxed us, and for that, I’m sorry.

It happened like this …

The setting: Beautiful 40°F day in the middle of December.
The location: My house, in Baldwinsville, NY.
The players: Sandra, Steve

Sandra: Wow, it is a beautiful day today!
Steve: No kidding… I can’t believe it is nearly 45 degrees outside right now! It’s the middle of December.
Steve: Ya know, all this warm weather and lack of snow, really makes me think we overpaid for the snow plow service this year. We should have gone for the pay-as-you-go plan.
Sandra: You realize you just jinxed us, right? We’re going to get so much snow now.
Steve: Nah! That won’t happen! Global warming means no more snow!

Fast forward to a few days ago: Snow. Snow. More snow.

The forecast, so far, for this week:

Weather forecast for the Syracuse area.

So to everyone, I’m sorry for the jinx. I didn’t mean it!

However, there is a bright side, and no, I don’t just mean the sun shining off of all the snow. The bright side is that there is great sledding, skiing, and snow boarding all around the area.
