It is a fact, that in the state of Colorado, you cannot swing a cat without hitting a Marijuana Dispensary AND accurate weather forecasts are harder to find than a unicorn….that asshole got everyone all riled up about the STORM OF THE CENTURY! The word Blizzard blazing across the screen in red which incited thoughts like THIS…to occur
“Oh, god! Hurry! Get to the store and stock up on the necessities! What if we run out of milk while we’re snowbound in our house? What will we do? Can we milk the cat? What will we pour on our cereal??? OH GOD!! I FORGOT THE CEREAL!! We’re all going to die! Quick, start sizing each other up, we might have to kill one of our own to survive! It’s not evil if we had no choice….it was a blizzard! Oh the humanity!”
….there is a half inch of snow on the roads….no milk to be found in any grocery store along the Front Range and some idiot pre-emptively cancelled school for the whole county…so everyone gets to stay home with their kids while people like me, who have no children…are in the office….
stupid weatherman…thinks he knows about snow or something

thats ok. i live in washington dc, and they closed down the government and all the public transit for a day a few weeks ago because the weatherman predicted 10 inches of snow, and all we got was some misty rain. WINNING.

@TwoStatesBride: I think I would be a lot more interested in the weatherman’s reporting if there were a negative consequence for a bad forecast….like he stands in a circle and we all throw pie at him…I think I could feel pretty good about things if that could happen…not to mention he’d have to step up his game or reek of boisenberry for the rest of his days!

Calm down… everybody knows that forcasting is not very accurate. In portugal isn’t either, they said sunny all week… it’s raining the sky off. Bah
I remember last winter they did alarm people talking about a storm and to go buy supplys in case of being in doors a week or more, and the stores were half empty and no storm whatsoever 😛

@Nona99: I feel you…a weatherman in our area promised to jump in a fountain in January if he didn’t predict the snow correctly, he followed through, too!

The weather forecasters have seemed to be even more pitiful than lately with their predictions. That could be because I’m so over all of this ongoing crappy Winter weather, though.
That being said, I don’t understand why people who live in snowy climates freak out when the weatherman says it’s going to storm.
I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t think we’ve ever had a snowstorm where we weren’t able to get out and about in the next day or two. Pretty sure no one’s going to starve with these modern inventions we call snow plows! It’s not like it’s the 1800s and we’re living out on the plains and don’t have efficient means to clear snow or access to reliable vehicles…
@TwoStatesBride: We got snow in WI from that storm…they predicted 4-6 inches and I think we got 10…yay for accurate weathermen and women!

I understand that weather reporting is not an exact science. But if I was publicly wrong that often at work, I’d have been fired a long time ago.

@Nona99: It’s the end of the world up here too since that storm is tracking in our direction. We aren’t known for cleaning off the grocery store shelves, but we’ve had a long winter so there’s a helluva lot of bitching going on lol 🙂

@TwoStatesBride: Yes, I enjoyed that day off 🙂
It is weird how people panic. Seriously, how long do you think you’re going to be trapped for even if there is a blizzard? Weeks?! How much toilet paper do you possibly need? Its really silly. The longest we’ve went without being able to get out was a week. We survived just fine and didn’t even buy any milk beforehand. What a miracle!
Our weathermen have been absolutely awful this year. Worse than usual, I think!

Has anyone noticed that people shopping before a huge storm are always getting items to make french toast? Bread, milk, eggs.

“Can we milk the cat” DYING!

@MariContrary: For REAL.
I was bitching over the winter because my old grade school used up ALL of their snow days. When I was in school, we had to be below zero with 4′ of snow before they’d cancel. This year? We MIGHT get some ice–CANCEL SCHOOL! One day they cancelled and all we got was some freaking rain.
