Your snow hype leader

In my post about the Snowpocalypse yesterday, I pointed out that Dan Barreiro had a beef with the local weather guys.

His latest salvo, fresh on his blog, takes Paul Douglas to task for the weather festivities of the weekend.

Over at ‘CCO, Derusha did a vid-blog on Friday with Douglas in which Paul explains his approach and how sometimes storms are not consistent across the metro and he has to report for a large viewing area. He also talks about how difficult it is to predict snowfall amounts because you are dealing with such a small amount of liquid extrapolated to snow.

Indeed, it does seem that snowfall totals varied quite a bit across the metro and even the viewing area of WCCO. I saw a lot of school closings and delays in outstate areas.

But the roads this morning – just fine for my commute. And probably for most of you, if I had to guess. It sounds like the biggest hassle for those of you in Minneapolis or St Paul was probably dealing with the snow emergencies and digging out your plowed-in cars.

    It’s kind of funny that so many people canceled their plans for today. All the snow that was on my car has completely melted off and anything that’s been plowed is probably clear now.
