What if we all did our jobs how weathermen do theirs?

Would anything actually get done?

"I will be approximately done with the report sometime between Tuesday and Friday. I might know more if you ask me tomorrow."

This is about the 5th storm of the season here in the Northeast and it seems that the weather reporting is becoming more and more vague. I know that storms move blah blah blah but seriously already. Give a timeframe and amount. How do I know whether I can make plans for tomorrow if they still aren't saying when it is coming?  You get these kind of headlines.

NJ weather remains frosty with more snow possible later this week

Forecasters waffling on snowfall amounts

ALERT: Snow storm expected

Oh wait, update. It will now be here from sometime mid morning afternoon Wednesday to sometime in the day Thursday. Yea, thanks. That really helps. 

Maybe all this bitterness is actually from the snow, ice and literally below freezing temperatures but it really makes you think about how much weathermen get away with. They can say there is 8 inches of snow coming and then we get none and it is ok. It is not considered a mistake. Can they actually make a mistake? Pretty sure the answer is no.

Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the work that they do provide. Temperature wise. Just see a downward trend on how the weather stations work and [predict weather. You think it would get better and more precise because of all the technology. But I'm no weatherman.

That's my rant for now. Enjoy the snow, how ever much we are getting!

~Whether the weather be fine, Whether the weather be not, Whether the weather be cold, Whether the weather be hot, We'll weather the weather, Whatever the whether, Whether we like it or not~
