For the past two years running, my family has bought a subscription to the professional Accuweather website. Several of the meterologists there provide daily (and more often, sometimes) columns, along with daily videos on short- and long-term forecasts. Reading the models, the long-range forecaster, Joe Bastardi, was calling for a huge storm this weekend as far out as a week ago, while many of his contemporaries were barely aware of a storm. So imagine my surprise and amusement today as some of them have now increased their anticipated snow totals even above what he was talking about at the time.
I hope Joe’s feeling good today, and come Sunday, he’s feeling even better.
