Phoenix weather alerts crack me up.
I just got off the phone with my mom, who is enduring the worst Cleveland snowstorm so far this season. 50 mph winds, heavy wet snow, drifts up against the family room sliding door, the works. In an attempt to commiserate, I relayed our impending weather drama. The Weather Channel has a "special weather statement" posted for Phoenix. Brace yourself for these gasp-inducing excerpts:
"RAINFALL TOTALS FROM ONE QUARTER TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH ARE POSSIBLE OVER THE GREATER PHOENIX METROPOLITAN AREA"
"AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL PLUMMET FROM THE UPPER 60S SATURDAY DOWN TO THE LOWER 50S ON SUNDAY"
Yeah. I don't think that made her feel any better.
