      Austin’s good at predicting the apocalypse any time a dark cloud approaches! you keep on crying wolf, and you see why people don’t take the warnings seriously

    If you are mad at the WX men because they dont give you what you want, ie, (great northern snows). Take your arse north and enjoy the 5 feet of snow on the ground in Northern Michigan.

      John, my arse always enjoyed the aftermath of a big bowl of Great Northern Beans and cornbread. Gotta hand it to you Yanks. That’s some good eatin’!!! :-)

    This won’t be a dusting. Trust me. Also all these northerns should try dealing with 110 heat index throughout the summer

  • Joe Censored

    Here they go again… Tabloid weather journalism 101… When it does not pan out, simply blame it on the NWS.

    These weather guys are laughable. Trust me, all of us “Yankees” laugh at you guys.

    Wolf Wolf Wolf!!!

    Why does it have to be a north south thing. I’m from the north, the weather persons there are just as clueless as they are here. Let’s try to remember that the are reading the weather not creating. Fellow northerners, if you think your so much better than everyone else try acting like it and be civil.

  • Bobo the Clown

    Hey y’all… Come on now… This one’s gonna be different! He said so.
    It’s gonna come barreling down from the north, take a dip in the Gulf, pick up a load-O-moisture and drop it everywhere except Memphis, then wreak havoc on the New England area.
    Oh wait! — It’s followed that exact same pattern for the last 150 years!
    Never mind…

  • Bobo the Clown

    @ Joe: “Yeah you southerners sure handled the heat index during the Civil War when we KICKED YOUR BUTTS”

    But dude — that was BEFORE you guys invented global warming! Now, try it! LOL ;-)

    It is a watch not a warning. It’s not 100% we will get the winter stuff. We will just have to wait and see what mother nature wants to do. These weather guys can’t predict what mother nature is going to do.

    This is so sad. It seems now Americans are arguing over the weather! It’s bad enough you can’t talk about politics without making someone mad, now you’re arguing over the weather??!!! It really doesn’t take much to bring out the worst in people.

    • Bobo the Clown

      Awww lighten up Al! We’re not feudin. Just havin’ a light hearted bak-n-forth. We all love each other here in the Kingdom of 3.
      You ain’t mad is ya bro? :-)

  • Bobo the Clown

    Does anyone have any milk and other stuff that will spoil that I could borrow when the power goes out for a week? I can’t go to the grocery store madness fest `cause I used the last of my gas to keep the still running in the shed behind our trailer. Both of my mom’s would have my hide if that thing quit!

    “The weather service removed all of West Tennessee, including Memphis, from the watch area. Earlier, the NWS had forecast the possibility of three or more inches of snow for the metro area. Now it says there is still uncertainty as to how much snow will fall in southwest Tennessee, including Memphis.”

    I refer you all to the post @ 2:28pm

    Bwwaaaaa Hahahahahaha

  • jeremy

    Soooo……We are like 2 for 10 in predicting these winter storms. I knew tornadoes were unpredictable, Didnt know snow was too…

    From a Sardis, MS native who lives in the north. FYI- The weather guessers here aren’t any better than in the Mid-South. A day in July ’13 brought this prediction in Mass;

    “Sun and clouds with a chance of rain.”

    Really? That is your forecast? What else COULD happen in July?
    HTG, heard it on TV and played back on the DVR to make sure I heard correctly.
