Begin rant: apparently in Wisconsin, 4-6 inches of snow really means over 1 FOOT of snow! I just got home from work and we had a pile at the end of our driveway that was at least 4 FEET high from the plow, with other drifts upwards of 2 feet. I love how weather people can be sooo wrong and still get paid for it! End rant.

Here in Oklahoma a blizzard / winter storm warning apparently means some rain, high winds and waking up the next day and it is sunny outside.
They were predicting 6 to 9 inches. Schools had closed ,etc. And then all that happened was rain. EVERYONE went to walmart and cleared the shelves.Deicer and milk was sold out everywhere here in our smallish town. And then nothing.
Weather problems..Sorry you got all that snow!! I guess we sent it to you!

I’d do anything for some snow right now 🙁 I am from NY but moved to CA …and I’ve been trying to get out of here and move back east for about 3 years now. I hate this weather. The grass is always greener, I suppose.

Ahaha, I’ve been getting weather alerts on my phone for the past few days. First saying that we’ll be getting 6-8 inches, yesterday saying 3-5, and then the news just an hour ago said 6-10 inches.. Really? Make up your mind!

Ok we didn’t have it that bad here in central PA. But I watched the weather yesterday…. I have one of those apps on my phone. And it kept saying “just raining, just raining, just raining” (I should have opened one of the doors and looked outside, there arent really many windows in our building) but I was busy….. well as soon as the weather app changed to “light snow” at home, I packed up and left.
I walked outside to find out that it hadn’t been raining, it had been sleeting/thick wet snowing for a looooong time. It took me an hour and 45 minutes to get home (because I live 45 minutes away as it is). I was SO PISSED. I don’t mind my 45 minute commute because it’s an easy and very pretty drive, except in this horrible weather. I’m SO FREAKIN OVER WINTER! PLEASE GO AWAY!!!!!!

I got a call at 730 this morning from my boss (who lives 45 minutes away). 1 manager can’t get out, 1 manager decided to take PTO this morning, no one else can make it. So, can I get out/to work (15 minutes away). Of course, I say! So, instead of opening at 9, we’re opening close to 11, because no manager can make it there before then. And we need 2 people to open!

We got a sleet/snow/freezing rain mess overnight, and the school where I teach was one of the only ones in the district that didn’t get a snow day. I totally feel the snow-haterd 🙁

It’s hard to be accurate about something you really can’t control and something that can change at the drop of a hat. If you’ve lived somewhere long enough and you know “X inches” means “X feet” instead, you can still figure out what to expect.
Here in Oklahoma, we were expecting a blizzard. It rained most of the day and I got maybe one or two snowflakes on my lawn. some blizzard.

@LadyMoriarty: LOL I moved from CA to NC, and I actually prefer the weather (and air quality) here.
