Strunk white, Idiot Weatherman: Physics-ally Challenged

"Right now the ground is frozen, so any water will just run off rather than penetrate the soil. We'll have to wait until the ground unfreezes for some of that moisture to be absorbed."

Or, we could just wait for it to thaw.

"We'll have to wait until we have temperatures above freezing for snow to begin melting."

No kidding?

You know that, and I know that, but there are many people who do not make that connection. I am constantly amazed at the ignorance I come in contact with on a daily basis. During one of my trips to Alaska, a teacher (yes, a TEACHER) was disappointed that we saw no monkeys on the Tsongass Rain Forest Nature Trail. The tour guide tried to explain to her that not all rain forests were tropical, but she didn't get it.

Strunk White must be related to the sports commentator that helpfully explained that my team needed to put some more points on the board if they wanted to come back and win the game...
