I read it in the papers...
...so it must be true!
If you are still able to say that with straight face, enjoy the contrast. Here we have the top of our street, taken about seven this evening after several hours of snow - and absolutely no sign of it abating. And then there is the newspaper forecast... which, of course, must be true.
Which explains why, more than two hours later - well past nine - it is still snowing just as heavily.
And if the media are so confident of the forecasts they publish over a span of 18 hours, what price global warming in five, ten, twenty years...? They really must think we were born yesterday.
