People bitch constantly about the accuracy of weather reports, but they’d do well in the stock market with information as ”bad.”
We had blizzards when I was a kid. I didn’t walk five miles to school in snow, just two blocks to the bus stop. And the snow sometimes started in November and stayed on the ground until March. I lived through the winter of ’67, and the snows of ’78, and the minus 25 degree temperatures in 1985. And in April of 1975 , I remember driving through a “freak” snowstorm that dumped 18 inches of snow overnight.
So when they predict three to six (or even ten) inches of snow and call for a winter storm watch, I don’t get it. This is Chicago. We’re supposed to get snow in winter. People who don’t want to move to Florida or Arizona ought to get a grip and a snow shovel and deal with it.
