    WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED. Woke up this morning expecting to start plowing and NOTHING, not a flake. What a screw up by the weather people. Its one thing to be a little off but to say 12" and get nothing is unacceptable. I am sick of this no real snow this month we need snow and were not getting any anytime soon. This sucks:angry:

    I woke up expecting to see at least a couple of inches on the ground too. There is nothing, and the weather is not very promising for today either. Robbed:(

    cja1987,

    I feel the same. Listened to the 11pm weather and they were still talking 1-3". Got up this AM and found ... nada, zip, zilch!

    I think the weather guys are to much into the hype these past few years. They want to boost ratings and generate news. Totally unacceptable.

    Yup, there is hope, almost 2 now and still a good swath on radar, Wax the blade!

    3-6" still stands for Cape Cod area.

    ok, I figured it out! the weather men/women get a kick back from the bread companies! :D Why else would every 1 inch storm start out as a blizzard?? :angry:

    I don't know. Here in Wilmington , we just got an inch in the last 30 minutes or so. But the forecast is saying now only 1-3".

    You can never rely on the weather in New England. :mad:

    I am going out to scrape my drive and a few others who called maybe and inch. The weather was telling me up to 15" last night how could they screw up when the storm is only hours away. I was pissed this morning woke up around 3:30 am and did not look out the window till 4 but i had an idea that it missed us when i heard no wind and it just sounded calm out. I had a bad feeling when i went to sleep wind was not picking up no snow as of 11 Pm either. I was totally expecting and planned for a snow day, this kind of a bust is completely UNACCEPTABLE these people are paid to get it right and usually do. Forecasters can't control the weather strange things can happen but if they don't have a clue they should just say "i dont have a clue this storms tough but no they have to keep with the 9-15 inch BS.
