  3. So work was just not worth going in tonight hardly any one showed up tho my area wasnt bad at all. Main reason myself and so many are leaving early is cause of freezing mist drizzle icing everything up bad. Since I was asleep through the whole storm and at work till now. What made the storm go from a 24 hour or so event down to 6 hours in central PA? I mean up till late model runs last night into this morning they were hinting it lasting into a good part of fri morning. Infact the wsw was pushed back till 10 am I wake up to it canceled and under a wwa. That in its self was odd to watch the 5am news and they were saying it would cut off around noon or 1pm what models made them pick up on that since late night models were trending more snow?

  4. I did a lot actually. Most of the times like I said they were pretty right. I mean the blizzard of 93 and 96 both were called a week plus out. Other storms like in high school we pretty much got the snow they called for every time if they called for 6 inchs we got about that. if they said 4 inchs then change to sleet at noon. right on the dot it changed at noon. now it feels like they put to much stock in models and dont forecast or go instincts. I mean how many times have you heard a model was thrown out cause of a error or a problem with the initialization

    Every one of your posts is filled with whining. Come on, man! It could be last winter!

    Well when it comes down to it yes I complain when 12 hours out they cant get a forecast right.  Im glad it isnt last winter Im just saying when I hear the most accurate forecast from local news I just wonder what the % is like 20? lol when every one else is like 15. I dont want to complain but it feels like forecasts have got worse vs when I was a kid they felt 9 times out of 10 spot on.
