Is it so difficult to be a weather man?

Or weather woman, depending on your current situation.

I swear (and you cannot make this crap up) the weather report for Thursday into Friday is either rain or 6 inches of snow. Not, say, 2 to 4 inches as opposed to 3 to 5 inches. Either RAIN or a BLIZZARD for December in our town.

WTH??? FTLOGAC, you get paid to give people a head's up on the weather. If this is how it is going to be, then I think I would prefer watching my weatherman wearing a turban on his head and looking into a crystal ball like a carnival psychic. Don't be wasting my time with all your advanced degrees in snowology, Doppler radar and computer-generated storm tracking.

I would just like to know if I am going to be drinking a cocktail drink in Miami in time for happy hour on Friday or if I will be stuck waiting in the "Holy-Shit-Someone-Across-Town-Saw-A-Snowflake-So-We-Are-Going-To-Shut-the-Whole-Airport-Down-Until-Spring-Arrives-Airport."

OOo...I'm hoping for the drink too.

(Although right now in Florida, it's raining and pretty shitty outside right now.)

The "Holy-Shit-Someone-Across-Town..." is so effing true!!! They closed the schools and hour early this week because of the THREAT of IMPENDING SNOW. We got like 1/16th of an inch. OH MY GOD, RUN TO THE GROCERY STORE AND STOCK UP!!! Sheesh..have a drink for me, would ya??

I'm flying out of Baltimore tomorrow. I just made reservations at a hotel by BWI - not because of the snow, but becuase of the "Holy-Shit-Someone-Across-Town-saw-or-heard-snow-is- coming-maybe effect.

Quick tip - everyone who is still in town this weekend - if it does snow a couple inches and you have kids - leave the kids at home with the spouse and go to Toys-R-Us. I went during the 4 inch "storm" we had on Monday. 3 people in the whole store.....

Have I ever told you you're my hero? Aren't those weather folks GREAT?!!? I swear, if I was as wrong as they are in my own job, I would have been fired a long time ago. Talk about job security!

I'm particularly disappointed at the moment by the inability of our weatherpeople to product that a GIANT SODDING BLACK CLOUD was going to descend over a substantial proportion of the country for several days.

Okay, you might say they couldn't have known that fuel depot would explode, but y'know, a little foresight?

it seems our weather man and your weater man must be in cahoots...maybe the smae blood line or something..the bloodline of a dumb ass

The weather is horribly difficult to predict. I use the old fashion method - look out the window, dress warm in winter and cool in summer. I keep a sweater at my desk and a blanket on the couch - year round. Weather forecasting is an art - so it must be that artists are the only ones who understand that "6 inches of snow" means rain. Go figure

So true, just like in Montana. Rain..or...snow...or...or...
funny:)
