We are in a perfect weather pattern for snow here in the Deep South. A raging subtropical jet continues to fly overhead bringing ample moisture into the area. The first of February seems to be looking good as far as cold shots of air coming from the far north in Canada.
I can remember the storm of the century in ’93. I was working as a fork lift driver in a towel warehouse for Martex. We had our biggest snow on record. I had a cat at the time and she jumped outside when I opened the door to check the weather. She disappeared in a snow drift that had banked upside my trailer. I remember picking her up and dusting the snow off as I laughed. She was thoroughly confused by the white stuff.
Will it snow after having not snowed here for seven long years? All the players are on the field. We just need a winter weather touchdown.
