    My local news station here in Southern Conecticut is calling for mostly rain with some snow thurs morning-not saying if or any accumulation. The weather channel is calling for a mix, but no accumulation. AOL weather isnt calling for much snow. I just checked on www.accuweather.com and on one of their latest graphics, are calling for 3-6" here! Saying the northeast will get anywhere between 1-10".

    Seems like March snow forecasting here in the northeast is harder for these guys.

    I have stopped even bothering with the weather forcasters- they have been more wrong than right for the past 2 or 3 years.

    Weather.com (yesterday) said nothing about snow (or rain) until Friday while Accuweather said 2.7" for me. News stations are saying between 2-4 and 2-8 overnight. Wait til it starts snowing and watch the radar maps yourself- you can't be any worse at predicting the weather than those guys have, right?
    That's what I have done all season.

    And of course, I lost 1st gear in the Dodge Sun afternoon and it's been sitting at the mechanics since..... Shop's been too busy to look at it yet. Hope he get's to it since he's my backup driver too so he's going to be really busy if we DO get any snow- plowing my route after his. :bluebounc

    I'm so sick of weather forcasters. They were calling for 5" two nights ago. We got rain. Now tjhey are calling for 4" tonight. Seems the more technologilcaly advanced weather becomes, the more they are wrong. :confused: The best method i have found is to just stick my head out the window. :eek:
