    Weathermen are at it all ready. I'm in the Buffalo area and they have all these snow warning for us but the snow is falling 90 miles away in PA. As far as I'm concerned they should limit it to a certain amount of miles from their station.

    90 miles is far out, but they probably do it for people within the viewing area that maybe driving out of town. Plus the first couple of snowfalls they hype it up to much, then nothing happens.

    There so friggin desperate for something to talk about it's crazy. All the time they spend talking about it, and they still can't tell us when it will start, stop, how many inches, heavy or light.

    6 inches, around here people freak out about it.
    It sure brings in alot of late or new contracts.

    An early "scare" of some decent snow will do one thing...it will at least get people off their arses to sign up for services.
