Be sure to record your favorite TV shows any way you can because in less than 24 hours the TV airwaves throughout the greater FORT WORTH/dallas region will be overrun by weathermen/weatherwomen who will be busy forecasting doom, despair and complete societal collapse.
Weather is coming. Weather. Rain. Cold. Wind. Sleet. Ice. Killer bees. Earthquakes. Tidal waves.
According to my new good close friend, KDFW Fox 4 metereologist Jennifer Myers, a cold front is coming to town. And hell is coming with it.
It's SleetMageddon 2013 - PREPARE TO DIE!!!!
Actually, just moisture. Maybe. Could be. It's dun fixin' to be really cold, with temperatures dropping into the 30s then we will see rain, and then possibly freezing rain with ice, sleet, etc. Society could collapse.
Didn't we hear this about two weeks ago when just about nothing happened except a little chilly with some rain?
This latest forecast of doom reeks of Anchorman 2 - lots of hype that can't meet the expectation (forecast).
This is drives me nuts about weather forecasters - they prepare us for our certain weather demise yet we are always underwhelmed by the results. With their ties unknotted or shirt tails out that to indicate how busy they are, they wave their arms at a giant map of your city that is covered in a collection of hellishly colorful hues that mean we will all die very soon in a giant thundersnow.
"If the temperature drops below freezing it could be really bad," Myers said. "In this region it's very difficult to predict because the winter weather is so finicky here."
Did you catch that? She said "If".
This is no different than the Dallas Cowboys preparing to play the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
If the Chicago Bears have quarterback Jay Cutler it could be really bad.
These weather forecasters have been getting a pass for years - they're batting .250 at best; it's time for the consumers to demand that the likes of Myers, Pete Delkus, David Frinfrock and the rest to be held a higher standard because their consumers plan their entire lives around their weather predictions.
If I am never wrong in my forecasts about five weekend football games, these guys should be doing just as well: Perfect.
