    The weather people that is! A dusting to max an inch for last night I wake up to 2" of snow and still snowing so by the time it was done we got about 3" the next town over got like 4-5". The point of this b*tching is I dident drop the skid off at the parking lot I do so I had to run in down there and take care of it after every one drove all over it and packed the hell out of it. anyway at least we got snow waaaaaaaawhooooooooo:bluebounc

    Hey man, I sure as h#)) wouldn't be COMPLAINING about snow, I still haven't been able to plow once. We had the flip side here in NJ, they forecasted 1-3", and woke up to nothing :cry: Sure hope we get some snow here in NJ soon!:nod:

    We live on Cape Cod! Haven't you learned that the weathermen can't get anything right. You know the saying, when someone asks you the weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change. Hell, you or I could do a better job than they do just looking out the window. Hopefully tonight we get the snow we haave been waiting for.

    You would think that when these weather guys came on at 10:00 pm last night, they could nail down without much doubt if it was going to snow within the next 3-6 hours and about how much we will get. I mean it is not like they have computers or technology to help them out. I told my 4 year old son last night before I put him to bed that it was going to snow and that I would see him in the morning after I got home from plowing. He says "Daddy it isn't gonna snow at our house, I'll see you at breakfast". I will let you guys know his predictions for Friday's storm, he will probably be closer than the weather guys

    My son says rain on the Cape and maybe a slussy inch or so north and west of Rte. 128. He will be checking the lastest computer models on his Gameboy later this afternoon and will get back to you guys with an update.

    Went whether men were you listening to, TV channel 4, 5, 7 all sad the tape would be getting from 2 to 5 inches.

    Unless of course you're listening to the radio. And your right radio whether men don't count.

    Well, they did it yet AGAIN. Starting on the 30th they say a few inches on Friday 2/2. Well on the 31st guess what? Oh wait, it's going out to sea. Have the plow on again and will put it back in the garage once again. Time to get the fishing gear out I think.

    My point exactly, they all said from Plymouth south to Provincetown would be getting anywhere from 2-5 inches depending your location. I live on the Wareham/Bourne line near the bridge and we got NOTHING. I can remember as a kid guys like Bob Copeland and Don Kent had no computers, satellites or fancy crap out in space to give them models to go by and they seemed more accurate than these guys of today. The old time weathermen had instinct and experience to go on and not much else. Hell, give me three computer models to choose from and I'll be right a 1/3 of the time.
