When Bad is Good

Drought

One of my pet peeves is calling weather BAD especially when sometimes the weather is actually good if it’s examined closely.

The Blizzard that affected Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas yesterday was well forecasted days in advance. There’s no reason why anyone there should have been surprised. My favorite part of the news coverage was a national reporter talking to a farmer who basically said, “Bring it on– the more snow the better!”

Why did he feel this way? The states now blanketed in thick snow are also dealing with extreme drought. Snow is welcome there. They’ll take heavy rain, too. More rain/snow is needed in this region in the months to come.

Sometimes Bad is Good.
