Terminology

Ejacucast Authority Jumpy Jim Flowers' Wednesday night prediction: a "snowburst" around midnight Thursday will bring the area "a quick two inches." 

Isn't "a quick two inches" how Mrs. Thiedlecki describes a night with her husband?

The Wednesday night newscast was one for the ages. In addition to the newly coined term "snowburst" we also had MANiko B show off her kindergarten level photocopies of how spending money in local stores compares to spending money at national chains.

To top it off we got one of those retarded fillers about Mike McKnight's family which showed a closeup of the train going around the bottom of the tree WITH THE FRONT WHEELS OFF which caused it to bounce all over the track.

It was the perfect metaphor for Channel Sux...

Lately it is pure comedy watching those guys. I thought Flowers was going to have a snow burst talking about the possibility that we may hear thunder. Can't this guy talk about the possibility of inclement weather without him looking like he is going to squirt his flower juice all over the weather center?

Mostly cloudy during the morning hours and some freezing rain turning to sleet in the afternoon followed by thundersnow tonight and my god...a nuclear blast after that...and total armageddon followed by...nothing...and oh...suddenly its sunny and not a cloud in the sky reality.

Yeah...I trust these guys about like I trust any member of congress. I'll stick to my own observations...I tend to be right on target more times than these guys are.

12 noon, and the sun is shining brightly!!!
So glad I did not go the store and stock up with all the armageddon predicted.

As the snow forecast gets higher and higher, I have no doubt that Jim Flowers will be bordering on a potential coronary during tonight’s newscasts. Don’t worry, Jim, I'm already prepared. I have boarded up the windows. I have four months worth of canned goods and bottled water, a shotgun, some Potassium Iodide to deal with the radioactive fallout and I have prepared my living will.

Ten bucks says Mr Flowers ends the newscast with, “Godspeed, everybody. See you on the other side”

(By the way, the "quick two inches" thing was a riot!!)

Uh oh... looks like poor Jim's big predictions can't perform again and 1-2" of snow is all we're gonna get total. Poor Jimbo looked crestfallen having to admit to his shortcomings although I'm sure he's been in this position many times before... just ask Mrs. Flowers.

Bob,

I laughed my ass off the first time I saw that train too. Isn't it amazing that no one, not the camera oeprator, McKnight himself, whoever edited that spot, or anyone else saw that those wheels were off the track and the train was laboring to circle the McKnight family tree. Your comment about the metaphor is absolutely hilarious, and true as can be.

2 inches? In her dreams. For some reason, the word "flaccidity" from another post comes to mind.
