Let it Snow, More or Less

For reasons that I've never understood, newspaper editors love to assign stories about the weather; and for reasons that I understood only too well, newspaper reporters hate them. Truth is, most weather stories are by-the-numbers jobs, one long cliche of quotes and anecdotes about "the white stuff" and how much more than normal commuters had to suffer.

But this one is a bit more interesting. It tries to explain why some places get more snow than other places nearby. We see it where I live -- seven inches of snow here often means three inches two miles to the south.
