Oh, I Love When It Snows in the Spring; Said No One Ever
As the host of "Kickin' With Carin, Middays on KMBR FM," I have literally said the word "SNOW" during an on-air weather forecast more this year than any other year of my life as a broadcaster! "Snow flurries, the white stuff, precipitation, the other four letter word"! You name it, and I've done it; used the term "snow" on the radio in the most "as a matter of fact" way so that I don't stress out the listener or myself for that matter. I mean, you still have to be firm about how the topic of hazardous weather is revealed so that people know what to expect in taking precautions; however, some subtleties have to remain. But hey, I'm just the messenger. Imagine how meteorologists across Montana and the nation feel about the dynamics of this year's weather pattern, then having to relay it to hundreds of thousands of viewers and listeners as if they're the ones that caused such drastic conditions in the first place. On either side of the mic, it's safe to say that we are "over" the current state of the weather in Montana. Besides, on paper, it's officially SPRING!
