Dear weatherman,
 
I think it is great you found a job that you can be right only 45% of the time (at best) and still think your the man. Like last night during the 6pm "News" when you said we will get 4" to 6" of snow over night. Then at the 11pm "News" a coating to an inch. How in 5 hours did the forecast change, 5 times less snow? Did you shake the magic 8 ball again? At 6pm you made it sound like fact real snow was coming not just maybe.
Love, Will

SECTLANDSCAPING 01-22-2013 12:49 PM

I was supposed to get a inch in the evening and then up to 3 inches till 1 am. I stayed up all night and after 5 hours of snowing had about a inch. I went out and salted at 3am. The weather man sucks. They couldnt even admit being wrong they just kept backing the end time up. It will stop at 2,3,4. I couldve went out at 11 and slept the rest of the night but there liars.

friday was supposed to be big but now there backing off that.

unfortunately,the weatherman around here said its going to be darn cold,the unfortunate part is he was spot on with his prediction .

LawnBoy0311 01-22-2013 03:04 PM

My friends uncle is a weatherman. Boggles my mind he has a beach house, but sucks at his job of predicting weather.

I think their scared to call for big storms now. Last night @ 11pm one of them guaranteed big snow on Friday right after messing up last nights forecast.

What would it be like if we could get away with that kind of service? lol

Ya in my state in the last week of December we could have a huge snow storm I get out of school I signed up for automated text messages saying snow storm coming in an hour. Ok go on the computer look out the window when it was time for it to snow like bannanas it was sunny and fourty degrees I took off the gearbox for my toro power max and re greased first gear and put it back together and no snow WTF. This is what my weatherman deserves

stevef1201 01-23-2013 06:13 AM

You guys have got it rough! Down here the weather man says' it will be cool to cold at night, warm during the day, clear to partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain' He is right every time. During the summer its " Hot and muggy, clear to partly cloudy with a chance of rain" Again he is right.

"If you dont likethe weather in Florida just wait a few minutes it will change!"

SECTLANDSCAPING 01-23-2013 11:09 AM

Fridays blizzard has been downgraded to this.

A slight chance of snow after 3pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 25. West wind 8 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

They were saying 4-8 and 6-12 with a 90% chance.

I just bought 3 tons of salt. I might have left overs for next year now.

Surprisingly I just received phone calls to bid a marina and a day care center. Its so late in the winter that I dont want to even submit a price. Whenever someone calls this late theres a reason. They werent paying and guy stopped showing or there PITA to work with and he quit or was let go.
