While we got the heads up from WOBM Meteorologist Dan Zarrow to expect occasional snow showers today, the heavy snow squalls that have passed through Ocean County throughout the day have made for a dicey afternoon and evening.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I wouldn't want to be a meteorologist. When the forecast goes exactly as you predict, nobody really notices or makes a point to thank you. But when a forecast "busts", people are calling for your head.
A friend of mine was just commenting this past weekend that some of her flowers are starting to bloom already, thanks to the unseasonably warm weather that we've been experiencing lately. While nice to look at, it comes with a big drawback - an early start to allergy season!
It was only two weeks ago that we told you about Point Pleasant based Bubbakoo's Burritos' impending expansion into Howell. That was followed only days later when they dropped a surprise followup, announcing that they'll also be coming to Ocean Grove. Well, they weren't done!
To be fair, we still have quite a way to go until we get to spring. In fact, as of this writing we still have 48 days to go if you're counting (which we are, by the way). But it's those little things that can make you think of spring that could help break the winter doldrums.
