Is this just a coincidental encounter between technology and Mother Nature or are the citizens of Washington about to attacked by a dragon?

Okay, it's not a real dragon but it sure looks like a dragon. That was the radar signature as featured during the weather forecast of a Seattle Washington television station.

I have to admit this area of showers highlighted by freezing rain and snow does look eerily similar to the Reptar character that fans of Nickelodeon's Rugrats will remember. I guess he does kind of resemble the big green dopey looking dragon from the PBS kids series DragonTales too.

Let's hope Acadiana won't be the recipient of rain/snow dragons or worse, another bout of freezing temperatures over the next few days. Judging by our forecast I don't think we'll have to worry about the dragons. The other, I am not so sure about, Mother Nature can be as fickle with a forecast as Doppler radar can be with dragons.
