Who can you trust?

Post by BradleyBrave »

The clowns today take us all for mor0ns who can’t look out the window. Probably in cahoots with others to stay on the air. Did either of these guys stoop so low to bend the truth?

We watched WEEK as a family. I don’t even remember - who did ABC have back in the day?

You are absolutely right. We should do away with all weather-related professionals and just let people look out their windows.

I agree with other posts concerning the weather. It was a stretch on all channels to call this a winter storm. Finding ice in ditches when roads were good, looking for drifting snow that wasn’t there. Yes, there was snow and one had to drive a little slower. But it is winter, but not a major ice storm as they kept saying. I know a lot of people were afraid of the ice and stayed home. Unfortunately it is Illinois and winter. But to the weather folks, don’t make it what it wasn’t.

Like I said in another post the worst part about a little ice and snow was not the drive, it was getting in and leaving Carver because they obviously are too cheap to use enough salt on their side walks.

This would never be an issue if the game were at RC. The incredible decision-makers at BU would have been all over this!

Again....if a person cannot find a reasonably current (and accurate) weather forecast these days, that is solely on them. Don't just look out the window...walk outside and see if it's icy or not. Dumb bastards.

Guys this was a huge deal, not just the biggest storm of the year, but the biggest storm of the decade. The warnings were legit for a storm of this magnitude.

I'm 800 miles away and I was scared for you guys. Glad Peoria survived this time.
