The weathermen who cried snow

It’s happened twice this week.

The weathermen got all excited about a blizzard-like thing on Saturday/Sunday.  We got wind and cold but no snow.

Then they got all excited and predicted a foot or more of snow for last night and today.  We woke up this morning to a revised forecast – 3 to 6 inches.

They are predicting another storm for the “latter part of the weekend” One presumes that is Sunday, but for whatever reason, they are afraid to say so.

Will anyone blame us if we ignore them on this prediction? Will anyone blame us if they suddenly get it right, but we ignored them, and so are unprepared?

I hope not.  After all, the tale has been around for ages.  The boy who cried wolf is not that different from the weathermen who cried snow.
