The weather advisories said starting at 6:00 this morning (Friday), the snow would start and wouldn’t stop for 24 hours. Be prepared for 5-8 inches, maybe more we were warned.
When did the snow stop? 10:30, 11:00 this morning?
But because the weather people speak, and we, like blind sheep, listen and obey, what did we do? We freaked.
ETHEL!!! DID YOU HEAR WHAT MALAN JUST SAID? NO WAY WE’RE GOING FOR EARLY BIRD FISH FRY SPECIAL FRIDAY NIGHT!!! WE GOT ANY BOLOGNA IN THE HOUSE??
How many people stayed home tonight when the weather was calm and the roads were in great shape?
How many businesses that look forward to Friday night took a soaking because the weather people were WRONG?
How is it possible that weather people with millions of dollars worth of state of the art equipment can be so wrong so often, AND keep their jobs?
