    I already went back to my summer job and have been enjoying the benefits of subcontracting w/ gaurenteed hours. IE, getting paid for nothing.

    It called all of last year from Jan-Dec, more than 90% accurate each month. I'd say thats pretty good. So far this year The only correct thing was the first week of January.:dizzy:

    What?:confused: that stupid thing was sooooo far off the past couple of years it a joke!:dizzy: It read (or at least the one I saw) "below normal temps for Jan. and above average percipitation, which means we should have over 60"s of snow in Jan and if we have 5 so far we are lucky.

    I planned my vacation last year by it- right on the money. I checked it over the summer for this year average temps, snowfall, etc. Seemed pretty close to me.

    I trust it over these TV weather guys wo can;t get it right by looking out the window....

    1st-3rd. Fair and cold. 4th-7th. Stormy, possible snow. 8th-11th. Fair and colder. 12th-15th. Unsettled for New England. Foggy along the coast. More clouds over the Mid-Atlantic States. 16th-19th. Fair, then turning stormy. 20th-23rd. Major storm along the Atlantic Coast. 24th-27th. Snow. 28th-31st. Fair and cold.

    that seems accurate to me
