All done with weather sessions for today…once again I can’t believe I’m stuck in Texas and missing the great snowstorm. That’s not only for professional reasons, but personal as well. I love seeing a good snowfall too just like the rest of the weather fanatics.
What a bust…but when the forecast calls for "up to an inch" of snow (NWS) or 1-2" (me, unfortunately via blog only) it shouldn’t be an incredible surprise that 1-3" falls. Unfortunately it appears that it was 2-5"…so, obviously a bust. And most important is the public perception which I assume will be "the best snowstorm in 3 years and no one called for it". It is good that some of you did better than I did on snow amounts. Of course I have to remind you that there were at least several times this winter that forecasters on this blog expected snow and it never materialized, so that works both ways…just a gentle reminder of course. I really wich I could be there for the "after storm" discussion on the other stations to see what the other weather folks say…we can’t get defensive and cranky after these sorts of busts.
I don’t have much to say about the next few days since I haven’t looked very far ahead. So enjoy the snow…Mark
