The Meteorologists Were Wrong And All Hell Broke Loose
Let's face it, we all make mistakes...but this one was pretty bad. All day yesterday we knew there was the potential for some larger snow totals in the hill towns, but I was under the impression that Albany, Schenectady, and Troy was more than likely going to get a little bit of snow, maybe some rain, no biggie. I say this with respect to the men and women who generally do a good job of predicting the weather: You botched this one pretty badly.
I realize a degree or two or a change of air pressure can make all the difference in the world but even our very solid WGNA meteorologist from the Weather Channel, Ray Stagich got a chuckle or two when we were busting his chops about how inaccurate they were. He even admitted to us, plain and simple, they screwed up. How or why is irrelevant; if I go to a restaurant and order chicken, don't bring me a hot dog. Today's weather versus what they predicted was the Joey Chestnut of botch jobs. It was like scarfing down 60 hot dogs when all you wanted was a chicken sandwich.
It happens, we all make mistakes and sometimes a nice Nathan's with some yellow mustard isn't the worst thing.
