I heard someone, well a couple of someones, say they thought that Larry Sprinkle and Harris Teeter are in cahoots.

Well, maybe not those two, specifically, but weather forecasters and the local grocery stores in general.

I swear, I mean I think you could have sold Wonder Bread and 2% milk for a 500-1000% markup on the Black Market Friday afternoon.

The aptly named WCNC weather forecaster, Larry Sprinkle.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Charlotte was expected to get bombarded with a major snowstorm this weekend, but most of the local area just got a brief dusting and a mixture of sleet and snow…not the 8″ that some weather forecasting models were predicting.

But it’s all good.  I still have my plastic sled and snow shovel I purchased before last year’s major 1″ snowfall, so I’m prepared when the next one hits.

They (the same “they” who may be in cahoots with the grocery stores) say this will be an exceptionally cold winter in the South, and I think we will get to experience a winter wonderland at least once in the next two months.

But “they” dropped the ball on this one.  Or maybe Mother Nature just faked us out at the last minute.

Either way, I can’t help but feel a little disappointed that I didn’t get to build a snowman this weekend.
