Strip by: Redhead64

TV Weatherman: Today's forecast calls for snow...
TV Weatherman: And tomorrow, more snow
TV Weatherman: And the next day, freezing rain
Jon: Oh, goody! A warm-up!
Garfield: Ever the optimist

The author writes:

After seeing this strip for the first time today, I briefly debated myself over whether I should shrink down the number of panels, or add way too many panels that say "And the next day, more snow". I ultimately decided on the former option, because A) less effort that way, and B) the "Overly Long Gag" version would be even more unfunny than the current, unaltered strip (though I will offer other authors on this site the chance to prove me wrong on that front).

Original strip: 2020-02-23.
