  • Over 50s/Am I the only one??/Weather forecasts

    Just wanted to know,mostly from the over 50 crowd.Am I the only one that remembers the T.V. weather forecaster,standing in front of a white board with a grease pencil,and telling you EXACTLY what to expect weather wise the next day???With all their sattelites/computer models/internet/viper 200000 etc. I am sitting here,with a torrential rain,30 mph winds and the forecaster telling me(on T.V.) that the weather has been fine all dayAND it is on all 3local stations,HULLOOOOOOOOOOOO,open a window gang

    Thank you,rant over,and dont plan any activities based on your local "weatherman"

    I remember the old weather forecasts. I think they were even less accurate than those of today. We simply expected less back then.

      Old T.V. This is what I saw when they were wrong.

        Weathermen have the only job where you can be wrong most of the time and everyone still like you.

              I remember when we first got a TV, I thought that was the most boring program on...then I realized it was a test pattern.

              No TV after midnight, then started again at 6am.

                Reminds me of hearing about a morning anchorwoman turning to the weatherman & asking "where was the six inches you promised me last night?"

                  Good old Dick and the pucking Woolly bear festival. My mom dragged me and my sister down to that dam thing when we were little just so we could meet him.............I have yet to forgive my mother.

                    He does do fundraisers for animals but that in no way excuses him for that lame duck of a festival.

                              Back in the day...Pete "Doc" Giddings was right on the money when it came to the weather.

                              Nowadays....weather forecasters are overpaid for "guessing" at the weather. Hell...I can look outside and see....red skys at night...sailors delight...red sky in morning...sailor take warning.
                              This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.
