We put it off as long as we could, but last night, we finally broke down and watched "Jim's Winter Forecast." 

After lots of yammering about a "La Nina" and water temps and jet streams, WOWT Chief Ejacucaster Jim Flowers got around to his prediction: early "ice events," and a winter snowfall total of between 28 and 32 inches. 

Guess what the average annual snowfall total in for Omaha is.

Yep, 30 inches. 

Way to go, Jim! Thanks for taking five minutes to point out what we found online in 30 seconds. That was well worth the week of hype you and your increasingly worthless station put into it.  (Did you go over to the "Dot-Com Center" to get your info?) 

As hard as it is to believe, the people at this station are seemingly beyond being embarrassed by the work they do.

Then Channel Sux must've passed up Disneyworld as the happiest place on earth.

You know. Sometimes I wonder if WOWT purposely does these things to humor me. On their "web channel" right now there is a story about window blinds being recalled or something.

But here is the headline to the story:

"Death Tiggers Window Blind Recall"

I'm hoping they meant triggers because my nephews will be upset if something has happened to Winnie the Pooh's little friend.

This is not related to the topic; but, here's a laugher for everyone. Last night on 42 (yes, I like to torture myself every once in awhile), they reported that "going to church cuts your chances of death in half".

George Carlin where are you on this one when we need you...?

Another WebChannel gaffe...

"Starting Monday, so much has changed so quickly when it comes to social media. Facebook, Twitter, Flutter, I-phone, and Myspace continue to rapidly change social connection as we know it. Even job descriptions are changing to keep up. Justin Joseph takes a look at each social media network and which one could work best for you. Social Media and You, a three part series starting Monday at ten only on 6 News."

Where to begin with this dud?
I-phone? You mean an iPhone? But that's not a social media network; it's a PDA.
