    There is a pretty good chance for some accumulation next weekend. It seems like no one here likes accuweather but they called the last storm really well. They were calling for about 6"s over 3 days towards the end of next week however they took it off and now it says sunny. Who knows I try not to get my hopes up until we are bout 3 days out. Although tom skilling does say that there is a really big storm that should be moving through next weekend also, so we shall see. Im hoping to be plowing cause I need the money!

    I watch about 4 different weather forecasters and then come to my own conclusions on it. But if I had to go by anyones forecast it would be Tom Skilling.

    I agree about Skilling. You can tell when he gets into the science of it all that he has a major chubby going. I hope for snow as well so Doug can keep the lights on!:salute:

    I couldn't find a puking icon to post a million times over..... Tom Skiling - you've got to be kidding. His record is worse than anyone else for the times you can figure out if he is talking about the past, way past, future, mystical realm or current. UGH. 5, 7, 9 all give general guidance, 7 being the more conservative but, it allows me to then start paying attiention to the radars myself. Skilling :jester:

    Looks like we might finally get something this weekend. Especially if you like ice. I am in the Roscoe/Rockford area and going to look at a hitch spreader right now. If it is as good as it sounds I'll get it so if anyone needs help this weekend, give me a shout.

    Gotten what right??? EVERYONE has been saying the same thing on all channels. snow,rain,snow/rain,snow/rain/snow. They all get the same basic info from 3 or 4 different computer models. Flip a coin, toss some darts and bingo a forecast of sorts.
