Take a Timeout, Accurate Weather Forcasting


Digging out today?  Sore after moving the 18 inches of snow we got yesterday?  Yeah man, I feel ya.

Wait a minute, no I don’t.

I would imagine that if this was 1984 and a Wendy’s marketing executive was paying attention, he would imagine a crabby old lady chirping, “Where’s the snow?” and see dollar signs.  Instead, the only ones seeing dollar signs are the local news stations who probably enjoyed great ratings after scaring everyone to death for the past 4 days about this END OF DAYS WINTER APOCALYPSE.

I can just see the competing weathermen right now. 

Let's see what you got, Lemanowicz.

“You’ve got it at 4 inches?  Well, I’ll see your 4 and raise it to 6!” 

“Six?  Pfft!  I’m going for 8-12, baby.”

“You guys are losers.  12-18 inches is where it’s at.  Beat that!”

Truth is, none of these guys know what they’re talking about.  And when their false predictions and overblown hype causes half the state to cancel schools, close offices, and pretty much shut down completely, well, that’s just the prescription for a ticket to Timeout Island.

Go sit in the corner, guys.
