    I think they are making a bigger deal that should be made with this storm. The weather forecasters get off on scaring people.

    Give Joe and the rest of the weather crew a break one time not right on and every one takes fits what about the other 98 per cent of the time they are right. I can remember when you did not know the weather one day to the next know joe gives you a forecast for up to 5 to 7 days ahead and he is just about right on.
