    ...weather forecasters used the same models which predicted a Clinton landslide.

    It always amazes me just how wrong weather forecasters can be yet we're suppose to buy into the Climate Fraud, I mean Change, idea. I want to be a weatherman in my next life so I can sleep late, miss work, and still have job security because I can still be right 50% of the time.

    I truly think they over-hype "weather events" like this for ratings. And also possibly out of fear that it could be worse than they predicted and are afraid of any backlash from people not being prepared enough.

    I find it to be absolutely ridiculous the way these idiots fawn over any weather event. WSB was up all night praying to find a snowflake some where in the state. They all look like a bunch of idiots. One nameless reporter named Brad, actually said if you see some little frozen pellets of rain, that is sleet. Ah the hell you say. Come on one update every half hour along with the normal news show is sufficient. I have never seen a market that advertises the news as much as Atlanta. They act like it is an ongoing series like The Bachelor or something.

    The problem is next time, when it really hits, no one will believe them. In '14 when everyone was stuck on the interstates, we were headed to Alabama. Got as far as Rockmart and turned around. Called work and told the girls to go get their kids now! That was at 11:30. This was the storm where kids spent the night on buses and in the schools. When that snow was falling onto the road and swirling in the wind, I knew it was going to be bad. My BIL got as far as Piedmont Alabama and had to turn around and come back, took him til Midnight to make it home, he used to be a truck driver. I would never want to be a weather forecaster. LOL

    You wouldn't have to work very hard and you'd be right half the time. Ridiculous.

    I call 'em "Weather Second Guessers" 'cause that's about as close as they come.

    BTW: I'm stealing that line above and posting it all over the place, that's great!!
