Pot-smoking National Weather Forecasters

I downgraded the crack-smoking comment, since the forecast of snow did come true, admittedly 6 hours late. Their dramatic forecast seems a tad over-the-top, especially when the storm comes in as warm as this one has.

..WITH GUSTS UP TO 90 MPH OVER THE RIDGES. THESE STRONG WINDS WILL PRODUCE AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW AND VERY LIMITED VISIBILITIES.

CONDITIONS CAN DETERIORATE RAPIDLY IN WINTER WEATHER SITUATIONS…SLOW DOWN AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME WHEN TRAVELING. PRACTICE YOUR WINTER SAFETY RULES…CARRY TIRE CHAINS…FOOD…WATER…BLANKETS AND A FLASHLIGHT IN YOUR CAR IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

I shouldn’t complain. It is snow, which means powder skiing may be in order tomorrow.
