I went to check out how the WSU baseball team did Saturday against UC Santa Barbara. The Cougars won 5-1 in nine innings and 7-3 in seven. Given the recent spate of ridiculously cold weather hovering over the Northwest, I was curious about the temperature in Pullman, so I clicked on the box score. Under weather, it said this:
I guess I can't blame whoever does the box score. I'm equally nonspecific about heat. Once the temp breaks 90, I just say it's frickin' hot. Who cares what the mercury actually reads?
Even though the Cougs got in two games Saturday, I can't imagine today's game will happen. As of 12:22 a.m. (the time I am blogging this), the forecast calls for an 80 percent chance of snow with 1 to 3 inches possible. Wind chill could drop to 0. Not exactly baseball weather.
The forecast in southeast Washington is crummy all week. Good luck to all the kids who are gearing up for their first spring sports practice this week.
In case you want a visual of the cold weather in Pullman, check out this photo tweeted by WSUCougars.com. Looking at it gives me the shivers.
UPDATE (12:09 p.m. Sunday): Today's WSU baseball game has been cancelled because of snow. The Cougars will play later this week in Tucson, Ariz.
