this year they dont seem to be able to predict a storm to save there life.
right now for indy there predicting 7+ inchs in the next 3 days.
this will be the 3rd time since jan 1 2008 they have claimed 7"+ snow fall and so far they have not got one right? i mena i pay for there service so i must think there decent. and for the most part they normally are but as of late they havent been able to hit the head of a nail with a 10 lb sledge.

anyone else feel this way or is it just me?

Hey Payton I usually just check NOAA. They seem to be about as accurate as anyone, LOL, and it is free. I just checked NOAA & they are calling for about an inch &half tonight in Indy and Greenfield so be careful tonight.

You actually pay them for it? Why would you do that? You can get free weather forecasts from a hundred different places.:confused:

Same here in Canada. Accuweather should rename their company to Stupidweather.

They are like the worst.... never ever right. Wow...:eek:
