          They're being awful cagey about estimates. I've seen some very odd predictions. 8"+, "a month's worth", and "significant snow event"

          My personal favorite is "a month's worth of snow." That's about as useful as "a cake's worth of flour."

          Edit: some of the longer range numerical models have it as upwards of 18" over the next 84 hours. Which doesn't cover the entire storm.

            Yeah, most I’m seeing are saying something in the realm of two feet during the work week.

              • A couple of close friends are cross country skiers who do the Birkie each year. They’ve had almost no snow locally this year, so they’ve had to drive a couple hours to train. Now we finally get a foot of snow on the day of the event. I don’t know what they are getting up there.

                      Wrong. Wrong wrong. Wrong. By the end of this we'll have had 18". Which is smack dab in the center of the range that was given Sunday.

                        Maybe you will...we won't. And stop pretending they weren't fear mongering way worse than that.

                        You should see some of the NWS models...crazy!

                          yeah, they don't give you a personalized street to street forecast. They said the Twin Cities.

                          They weren't fear mongering. They were warning people to be prepared. Anything approaching two feet is a massive event in Minnesota. Especially with these winds. From the beginning they've been saying 12-24". I even said they were being cagey.

                          Everyone is acting like management (in reverse) when you give them a ballpark budget estimate.
                          "How much?"
                          "$50-$75 million plus or minus 50%"
                          six months passes
                          "Ok, we've refined our budget. Going to be 80 million plus or minus ten percent"
                          "You said it was going to be $50 million"
                          "no, I didn't"

                          • I don't care that they (the NWS) were wrong its a guessing game at best and a tiny shift in the wind can screw everything up. I just wish they acknowledged the truth more and admitted they were off and spend time explaining why.

                            Local news though fear mongers and you know it. The Goof on the Roof has been doing it since he was at KARE11. They know Minnesotans care about the weather above all else so they put their thumbs on the scales.

                            • They weren't wrong. I don't know how to say this any clearer. They said 12-24" and that's exactly what we're going to get.

                                Local news is always fear mongering, whether it's The Big Storm or moral panic. What annoys me is the Weather Channel got into the same game. They are supposed to be professionals.
