He deserves to be after all these clippers teasing him.
6:55am and a quick check of several other weather stations and Doppler systems including NOAA's now indicate that the storm did not develop exactly as predicted! Current Radar does not support the forecast !
What do you mean? Can you expand on your comment?
Current radar and other Doppler systems (NOAA) show the storm did not develop as large as predicted. Radar does not support the forecast! This may yet be another blow-out, overly hyped storm!
Wow, another low information tea baggin armchair quarterback! The WORST of the storm just started at 9AM, a few minutes ago and we will get 5-10" before it is all over with later tonight.
Please call WJLA at 703-236-9555 and tell them to stop hyping this!
Is there really some reason to run every closing in the area all over the screen when you've started your broadcast by announcing that "everything is closed"? Do people in the newsroom need to take a second to look up the definition of "everything"? Is it really necessary to have reporters stand out in the middle of slush-covered streets telling everyone to stay indoors and be safe? Does coming up with some childish name for a snowstorm make anyone any safer, any of your reports any more helpful, any of your stories more accurate? As always in the DC area, YES it is snowing, but NO, that does not mean stupidity must rule the day.
I was watching Doug Hill and Devon Lucie on NewsChannel8 defending their station's coverage of the snowstorm. I think they're doing a good job at it and I wish we had more sympathy for the somewhat thankless job they do, and same goes for the news reporters who get guidance from the meteorologists on how to report this snowstorm. Nobody's perfect and Doug understands that this is a learning experience for everybody, including our local news outlets. Let's hope that they got the hint this time and that next time the coverage will be better. Just my 2 cents...
Once again our mega billion dollar weather wizzards (NOAA) have fallen on their noses. Every year hundreds of millions of our tax dollars are pumped into this folly and every year they show they are worse than the year before. Here we sit at their mercy, our schools close, businesses close and governments waste millions preparing and nothing happens. Does anyone ask how many millions of lost production is caused by these fantasy storms? Then there is the news / media hype where storms are used to pump up advertising profits. Woulda, coulda, shoulda, perhaps a NJ medium would provide better forcasting.
for a comment adventure starring WJLA's favorite haters!
