One of my blogs this week that got a lot of attention took aim at the TV weather crowd. In case you’ve forgotten, their earliest predictions for that “storm” a few days ago were for 4-8 inches. What did we get? An ever so slight dusting that blew off the driveway the next morning.
Well, as Yogi Berra once said, it’s déjà vu all over again. One of the TV weather gods tonight said the next “storm” (OH MY GOD!) this weekend could be in the 6-8 inch range.
I figure I have two options:
1) Run out and stock up on Wonder Bread and whatever milk the missus is drinking these days.
2) Buck up, realize it’s February in Wisconsin, and wait once again till they’re wrong and laugh like crazy.
I choose #2.
