WEATHER ALERT?

A rather STRONG rumor emerged today from a private source deep inside Rhode Island's emergency management bureaucracy: Meteorologists are watching a pair of storm systems that may coalesce and hit the area later this week or the weekend as the second MAJOR snow event within seven days.

Here's the disquieting part: An unofficial embargo has been placed on this activity. In other words, the media is being told by government to shut up -- to keep vital information from the public.

And the lapdog press -- big surprise -- is doing as ordered.

Feel safer now?

There are a fair few people out there, not currently employed by USG or some Weather Porn channel, who can read meteorological charts and data

So, if it's simply a question of interpreting and modelling the publicly available data, I would imagine someone would be hollering.

Perfect Storms are great for ratings.

Which leaves another possibility: the raw meteorogical data is being tampered with....
