And that’s why I don’t trust the weather man.

WeatherLast week I overheard a co-worker say that we were going to get a big storm in a week with a foot or more of snow. Then my wife heard it too. Seems it was all over the news.

WCCO was reporting 12-15 inches possible, KSTP said 6+ and most other stations were reporting a major snow storm.

Now we are a day away from the storm and what are they predicting? 2-4 inches say most stations with a few thinking as much as 5 or as little as 1.

This is why I don’t trust the weatherman.

Now I love the weather. It’s unpredictable, its beautiful, it’s powerful and it’s ever-changing. But I’ve learned over the years that you never trust a forecast more than 2 days out.

If you want to know what the weather is going to be like tomorrow, check the forecast. Want to know what the weather is going to be like next week? Guess.

To many times I’ve gotten excited about an upcoming storm only to see nothing come of it.

I’ll continue to watch the weather and enjoy the possibilities of what may come, but if we get bent out of shape over what might be, we’re getting ourself all worked up over nothing.

Enjoy today, think about tomorrow and worry about the future when it gets here.
