It's snowing in Seattle. Yesterday they predicted an insane amount of snow in Seattle and on the Eastside. Schools closed in preparation. People stayed home. The news said to prepare for the worst snowstorm.
Well guess what-- it's didn't snow in Seattle and the Eastside. In fact, it was sunny for a bit in Seattle and just rained on the Eastside. Oh no, the news told us, the snow is coming is this afternoon. "This afternoon" became "this evening." No snow.
This morning it did snow and we were ill-prepared. Snow plows can't keep up. The roads are slick. Some roads are closed and some freeways are parking lots.
We can't even accurately predict the weather 12 hours from now so how can we predict it 50 years from now?
