More "OMG it's weather!" freakout on LEast coast

That's odd...

...not one mention if AlGore is anywhere in the area?  Certainly the FakeNews outlets are suppressing that information!

And "biggest March snowfall since 1993"?  Seriously?   ::hysterical::

Looking out my picture window w/all the cars jammed into the driveway to let the plows do their work...there's maybe 4-5 inches atop our van - it's been changing from snow to sleet & then back - not as bad as predicted...

...Trump has apparently slashed snowfall as well...making my driveway GREAT again!

Surely, somehow that just has to be fascist and racist...right?

I wonder how all those stranded globtrekkers feel about the great snow-fizzle-shizzel of 2017 now?

... The National Weather Service warned that a nor’easter bearing down this week on the Atlantic Coast would dump a potentially catastrophic amount of snow from Washington DC to Massachusetts. Major cities deployed snow-removal infrastructure as businesses closed to withstand the storm. When NWS models changed as the storm grew closer, showing a milder event, they kept their mouths shut — and these cities want to know why:

... The National Weather Service said it kept predictions high because it worried “a dramatic change in the snowfall forecast could produce an unwelcome result of less readiness and vigilance.”

... The answer offered by NWS is nonsensical, and self-defeating. Yes, keeping information away from people to maintain a panic mode certainly helped maintained “readiness and vigilance” … this time. The next time NWS warns of an impending catastrophic weather pattern, will it get the same response? Or will their diminished credibility lead a lot more people to discount their warnings as yet another attempt to manipulate public response? People already tend toward the skeptical when it comes to meteorological predictions just because of the whimsical nature of weather without adding dishonesty into the mix.

They've morphed the Catastrophic Glowball Climate Change crisis model into all weather forecasting now.  Along with the weird expanded weather terms now.

As opposed to rain...

been a very mild winter here in the Chicago area.    Frankly if global warming was a real thing,  warmer temps frankly aren't a bad thing in my book.
