The Hype, the Drama, Hold On here it comes...is getting old and ridiculous. I dont even listen anymore and actually chuckle at the masses running for milk and bread.

Doppler Radar, Meterologists Blah Blah Blah, with all this high tech they still cant get it right. If I made this many mistakes at my job I would be looking for a new one.

And who gave the salters and Plowing people off. I drove from Buffalo to Rochester at 6:30 a.m ~ 8:00 a.m and did not see even 1 plow on either side of the Thruway and they need to raise our tolls because...

Channel 2 here is your story...where were the plows and why were the roads at 6;30 this morning in worse shape then my unshoveled driveway?????

A bunch of nothing ! Once again Ch#2 cried wolf. And everyone became worried. The storm of the century is comming ! I am so sick of weathermen exagerating every small item ... just for job assurance. Hey ! Let's be more honest. Don't exagerate just to justify your job !

I am starting to think the the weather people have to put these warnings out for stupid people. Just like McDonalds had to put "warning hot" on their cup of hot coffee, it's all for stupid people.
Look out, everyone is gonna die when the next storm comes Friday.

Yeah Bill. You also don't have any water and have 130 degree days in the summer. Do you go out in that heat, or do you old farts lock yourselves up in your homes and rot?
How's the Mexican's crossing the border. Sorry, should I write this in Spanish for you to read loser?
You also don't shovel skin cancer and overpriced property values and taxes.
Screw the weather people here. They want to act like big stars and big men and blow things way out of proportion. It was NOTHING.
What is with calling names? What is your problem? If you can't write an intelligent comment, don't comment at all. I drove home in that at 7:30 last night and it was hell. It is not me I was worried about, it is the people who think they can go the speed limit and end up causing an accident. I do agree with other posts the plows need to do a better job. What's the point of making sure the main roads are taken care of if no one can get off their street to go to work???

I'm really getting tired of the weather being the lead story on the news. After all this is Buffalo isn't it? These guys got caught with their pants down when the October storm hit so now there's a winter storm warning every time we get a few inches of snow. When a real storm comes through that we should be concerned about, nobody will be prepared because we get all these warnings every week. and then 3 inches of snow. I call it typical Buffalo winter weather. They should just issue all the warnings in November and leave them in place until April, then go home for the winter because a monkey with darts can predict the weather as accurately as any of these "experts".

It is truly ridiculous to make typical winter weather the lead story in Buffalo, but then again this is Buffalo.

The real Buffalo is just too embarrassing and disappointing:

1.) McKinley High School (Buffalo Public School) corruption!

2.) Suspending a good cop (Delano), who got a couple of innocent people out of prison and works diligently to find the truth in criminal investigations!!

3.) The woman's dead, murdered body recently found in a cardboard box (like so much trash)!!!

*snort*
So you "kepped" your son home from school.
You are a poor excuse for a father. You should not have KEPT your kid. You were SUPPPOSED to send him to school, WHERE he could learn to be a better speller than you.
On a second thought, maybe you should go to school with your kid. Maybe you'll learn something.
