I think it's interesting that the other channel is calling for 2-4 inches and 29 says 4-8 inches of snow. So who is right. You can count on us. I doubt it.

There is no mention of "might" in any of the predictions. The prediction is that it IS going to snow. Will it be wrong? Maybe. But most people have enough brains to get off the roads BEFORE it turns into something nasty. That isn't a "chicken little complex" -- that's just being smart. You're probably one of the idiots whose wrecked car I'll be passing on the way to work tomorrow. Tough guy.

I think if channel 29 were playing channel 19 for the correct weather forecast for this snow storm the slaughter rule would be enforced in channel 19s favor.

So no family with children should have two working parents? Or no single parent should work at all?

What better way to attract viewers than to instill fear.
