    All weather forecasters/metorologists are full of s---! I've never seen one who could predict the weather for the next day or week let alone a whole season. In my opinion, the old boys around town are better at predicting weather using how fat the squirrels are than the weather people with all that fancy, expensive, waste of taxpayers money equipment. :angry:

    I agree with Boss..

    Local weather people said it was going to be 60, cloudy in the morning and sunny in the afternoon today..

    It got up to 50, and rained all day..

    that forecast was given at 6:30am this morning..

    It's ridiculous :eek:

    I don't use an individual expert as scott browne claims to be. I make my own observatons, and i think the best for weather around here is by far New England Cable News. Next favorite is weather.com, both are accurate. I for one think the majority of meterologists do an excellent job forcasting events. They always nail the rain snow line for my area usually about 2 days out. The forecasted high and low temps are usually dead on, especially lows. And in the case of weather.com, temps/weather is predicted in every single town in the U.S.A. and vaires (usually correctly) from nerby town to nearby town. they are usually pretty damn close when they say snow starts at 2 PM, its usually snowing by 3. Two winters ago i was told by a meterologist that i know to expect 75" of snow in my town that winter, i measured 77", this past winter he was about 8" off. Some meterologists are wrong but good ones rarely are, the meterologists are up against nature which will never be completely understood by anyone and usually does what it wants. Weather forecasting is a pretty amazing thing when you think of it and to even be able to tell us when to put our plows on is an accomplishment.

    If I want to know the weather, I look out the window.

    Just a thought to ponder. How many other occupations besides meteorology can you be dead wrong 80% of the time and not lose your job?

    I dont think that any selfrespecting weatherman would want to put up with the abuse some of us seasoned veterans would give them after seeing them ruin our days with bad forcasts

    Ha ha, nice work nate :drinkup:
    I don't think we will see "scott brown" again, some people are just really bad liars, we could tell from his first post that he was lying, its very obvious.

    Nate, I tried to e-mail and pm you all weekend as I had a note written to the real scott browne(brown) also. I never sent mine once I saw you had done it. We both had our suspicions. Sorry marge, you're busted, we were on to you from the beginning.
    Oh, I plow snow and I have a dog named Flake.

    Good work, Nate. I didn't figure any professional person would put out the garbage he had; particularly over his given name. But I'm glad you checked with Mr Brown. Now post that email under any more postings this guy makes. What I'd really like to see is a lawsuit for "defamation of character".
