It turned from snow to rain this around 10 AM, temp got up to 45*F, a lot of rain, blowing horizontal in high wind. Just inland, they got dumped on and the roads are bad, so they say.

Much of the 6+ inches snow we got last week in a mainly "cape & islands" only storm got melted today.

Branches and sticks all around, some coastal erosion, ferry boats did not run today, I have no complaints,..happy storm, and you folks with iced out roads, please be careful driving tonight.

Just went out and measured . We only got another 1 in of sleet since 6pm.
"NOAA promised another 7 inches, they owe me another 6-8 inches of snow.

Only got 10 inches total, not 18. We only got ~ half what they promised us

I think the weathermen are compensated by the retailers to predict good and bad weather. That way all snow stuff sells out, on the flip side summer weekends are always beautiful so rentals, food, beer, sunblock sell good, and there is never any wind on the ocean so the charter boats get the bennies down here for the weekend only to have the hair blown off their head.

I think the Russians are also involved!!!!!!!!! (darn fake news)

Snow, what snow . Now that I have all that extra gas for the generator I didn't need to use, I guess I need to run some engines. But, what do I do with all that extra bread & milk & .... (return it ) right here in NJ, where I made it through another nor'easter without incident .

This time I was in the bullseye. A good solid two feet. Oh well... in a couple of weeks it will all be a bad memory. On the other hand, the skiing will be great! 26" of fresh powder on Jiminy Peak. Yea!!!

I'm working on a bike in the garage and last night on the radio was Hannity beating the hell out of some east coast weather reporting guru. He was merciless hammering on the guy with the why can't you idiots get a forecast right. Man he had this guy dancing and didn't let up. You said we'd get two feet on the island and we only got 10 inches and so on.

The gist was that they've been using the same patterns for 50 years to forecast what's going to happen. As we are in a warming period the guy admits the historical patterns are wrong. This of course ignited Hannity citing the Einstein definition of insanity proverb of doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

I sorta felt sorry for the guy getting ripped apart but damn it was funny.
Same thing here in cheeseland. A couple days ago we had the storm that you easterners got. They predicted 10-15 inches for my area and we got 3. I'm not arguing that one though.

Hannity is a loud mouth. It's easy to stand on the sidelines and criticize when you have absolutely no knowledge of the subject. I'd like to see him do any better.

Meteorology is boring in certain areas of the country such as Arizona. In other areas of the country such as the Northeast it can be quite challenging to get anything approaching an accurate long term forecast. Small random changes as the weather system travels can have a huge effect on the outcome. I'm amazed they were able to predict this event a week in advance. So they got it a bit wrong, the storm moved further inland, and I got the booby prize. It happens.

Interesting reading would be "The Butterfly Effect" in which small changes in a system can cause enormous changes in the outcome.

I'm not a meteorologist, and I enjoy tweaking them a bit about the lack of accuracy just like anyone else. But to rip into them without having any knowledge of the subject is disgusting.
