The Snow that Never Came

I briefly read some of the comments from our transplanted Northern friends and our home grown Southern friends. The comments are all the same old...same old and is not the point!

The main issue is that because of the over-hyped weather forecast, Local, State, several other agencies, and companies have shutdown. These closures will result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost monies. All this because the forecast was so off! How can they be so far off and yet still be called a weathermen/women??? I have heard and seen many forecast that forecasted 3-6" of snow to a high of a foot! Now I am sure forecasting isn't like building a part with instructions, but seriously...look out your window! It's just cloudy here in Leland with very little precipitation. Believe it or not Brunswick county is under a State of Emergency! Now they're hyping up the freezing rain and sleet. Both are dangerous no doubt, but the "snow hype" didn't work let's move to the "sleet hype"! If I or any of us that work make this grand of error on our jobs we'd be fired! You'd think with all the computer models they rely on they would be much more accurate.

Lastly, my 6 year old is bouncing off the walls with anticipation of "The Snow that Never Came"! To quote Forrest Gump..."That's all I have to say about that."
