The 's' word has been thrown at the Quad Cities once again.

It's definitely spring but that's not the 's' word I am talking about. Snow. The cuss word meteorologists use during the spring. It's hard not to take it personally, especially after we had better weather, in the 70s mind you, in February.


According to my friend, Eric Sorensen at,

"A stiff northeasterly wind will develop this evening, allowing temperatures to fall to 35 degrees by Wednesday morning. A steady rain will begin after 3am, lasting through 11am Wednesday morning. By midday, rain is expected to mix with or change to snow. Snowfall rates could be quite impressive, possibly in the 1-2 inch/hour range."

Break out your shovels and gloves, salt and scrapers (and even limes) and prepare for Mother Nature's drunk weather adventures once more. She's the 'last word freak' winner if I ever saw one. Or, we can pray it goes way to the northeast and this is all just a bad dream.
