Well, That Was A Wash

I hardly know what to think about all the weathermen and weatherwomen in this town. I swear, they take the most implausible worst case scenarios and predict their forecasts by them. Bob Ryan, Topper Shutt, you guys really oughtta do better. We had maybe an inch or two on the ground this morning, all the while you were proclaiming to the highest heavens that we were due some 4-6″ of the white powdery stuff that even Marion Barry won’t snort.

How did you make out with the snow?

    I’ve just stopped listening to the weather doomsayers. The hysteria over the possibility of snow in this region always makes me laugh. It just gets more overblown each year the further we get from the last great blizzard (’96 maybe? When teh goevernment was closed for a week and there was cross-country skiing down CT Ave…) I sometimes wish we’d have a real one to remind people of what it’s actually like…

    Gosh, forgive my misspellings above. My fingers are just so frozen from the extreme cold and snow blowing through the holes in my office windows. Wow, that storm shattered every single one. ;)

    Glad you called them on this. It’s ridiculous, I vote to recall Bob Ryan, Topper Shutt and everyone else. They should have to shave their heads or eyebrows live on the air if they butcher a forecast again.

    I totally agree, JMD! Who do we get first?

    Ryan should start, he’s been here the longest. I’d love to hear one of them take a chance, say something bold. Enough of the attorney/politician speak, go out on a limb. Can’t you just see Topper saying “If it doesn’t snow 6 inches tonight, tomorrow, I’m shaving my eyebrows on the air at 6:00”. That would be great! Bring it strong Topper!
