Khamsin Molossia News

As much as we would like to avoid it, winter arrives here in Molossia around November each year. Usually the first snow falls in December, melts and is replaced off and on through January and February. By March the weather slowly warms in anticipation of spring. This year stuck to the pattern, and after a fairly quiet January, February showed us a real winter. The first real snowstorm of the year arrived on 5 February, dumping a few Micronortons of snow on our nation. After a short respite, five days later the next storm blew in dumping another few Micronortons of snow on our fair land. During all these storms the mountains around Molossia received a great deal of snow, and when snowstorms were replaced by torrential rain during the week of 11 February, the rain melted the mountain snow. Flooding resulted in nearby creeks and dry washes, creating havoc in the Northern Nevada area. On the heels of that, more snow arrived on Friday, 15 February, followed by a stronger snowstorm on the following Sunday. Of course, being a desert nation, we welcome the water that snow brings, although a little break in the foul weather would be nice. But there's not much we can do about the weather, in spite of Mark Twain's advice, so we just need to dig out, stay warm and know that sunny days are right around the corner here in Molossia!
