    (says I, who took a personal day yesterday--the excuse I used was the impending snow but the real reason was to play Sim City all day--)

    The next time the models are calling for snow while simultaneously saying it's going to be 36 degrees, maybe believe it.
    The April Fools Day storm of 1997 was a lot like Saturnsnowquesterbust, except it DID dump FEET of snow the day after places had temperatures in the 60s. I went to the movies with friends the day before. It was 70 degrees and almost summerlike with the humidity. We came out of the movies. It was 44 and raining. I woke up the next day to 8 inches of snow.

    As I recall, this was not something anyone saw coming.

    So I'm okay with the occasional busted forecast.

    Also, I prefer hurricanes. They go where they're forecast to go, and are SO much easier to deal with operationally (as long as we aren't talking intensity. That we have NO handle on. AT ALL.)
