running through the rain drops

Thankfully that whole big ice, snow, sleet, freezing rain storm missed us for the large part. We only accumulated about one inch of snow since they predicted this disaster on Friday, and we had about an hour of freezing rain on Saturday, which wasn't pretty.

Now let's contrast this to what the local STORM CENTER weather station called for: SIXTEEN INCHES OF SNOW with hours of sleet/freezing rain/rain/ice thrown in. Yes, this is the sort of bullshit we have to deal with every stinking winter. People get so angry because they're not even CLOSE to the forecast. Although the grocery store owners love it!

Now this is what bugs me: history has shown that they will call for a storm, be way off, call for a storm, be way off, call for a storm, be way off, THEN they'll call for a "warm up" day and we'll get so much snow we won't be able to shovel our way of the house. I'm just wondering when THAT'S coming....

I watch the weather channel like it was religion. If they call for us to have a storm, I shut it off and plan my yard work.

LOL! Actually The Weather Channel is the more accurate when it comes to our local station or the WC.
