    Bruce, your map makes it look like 12 for us. Thought getting the snow blower all gassed up and running kept us from anything important last weekend. Looks like it's not a fool proof method.;)

    The local weather guys are getting all excited trying to decide where the snow /freezing rain line change over will be. the are predicting 10-20" around here, that pretty well covers it I guess.

    I'm hoping we stay above that freezing rain line and just get the snow.

    My favorite, " The Occasionally Sarcastic Sullivan County Pennsylvania Weather Service" is predicting somewhere between 2 & 32 inches, maybe some freezing rain & sleet, maybe not :D.

    I had a few meteorology courses at PSU in the '70s. It reallly is way more complex than most people realize, but...I think the weather on the "news" is much like the "news" itself. I think they know that when they are talking about a big approaching storm, they have everyone's attention, much like all the bad news, murders, disasters, etc. One summer, I had a retired Air Force pilot that was a phenominal teacher and meteorologist. As part of each lesson, he forecast the weather until the next class. One time, he was off by 4-5 hours!:eek:

    Bruce, from what I've seen (as if it really matters:rolleyes:), you should be OK up there. Here (maybe Frank as well) are supposed to get a crapload of sleet/freezing rain. One forecast we get shows all the "models" and looking at them, it's probably not much different than your sarcastic Sullivan County forecast.;)

    There off on the snow thing lots because things seem to change a lot I guess ?. I got to say they are spot on most times for wind. I look at the intellicast radar ,wind prediction for the day before going out on the old susky fishing . I,m amazed how close they get for the time,speed of the wind. haven,t got real wet in the last few years or capsized yet by going by there forcast :p where,s that old Maine speaking weather man ?:p
