    Can get it so wrong.

    Yesterday here in Michigan they called for a half inch of rain....90% chance to be exact. Result....nice day, absolutely no precip.

    So....I have some finish work to do on my plow and such and since they said a 60% chance today I figured Id be vacuuming the house and whatnot.

    Its almost 10am, no rain, suns shining.

    I sure hope they get it right when it starts snowing.

    For that matter I hope it snows at all!

    :cry:

    I was going to spray a house this weekend. The weather guesser's said it was going to rain all weekend! It's near 10:00 and not a cloud in the sky!
    This time of year they are about 50% right. We have lake Erie which throw's it's 2 cents worth into the mix. ( lake effect snow & showers )

    Right. And now you feel guilty for sitting here when you should be out earning! lol :waving:

    Of course if you started the project it would start raining.

    My point EXACTLY of why NOT to believe any winter outlook forecasts. When the snow is on the ground, that's when we have snow. Until then, I'm staying in bed with the lady.

    Yep here they kept saying sleet for the weekend. Well its Sunday night and not a thing but a little bit of rain. But who knows, Ill believe snow when I see it. Last year downstate got all the snow and we didnt get much at all.
