I have now gotten three mean emails. They were sent using a web form, and it’s tough to tell when they were written. My guess is, these were people who didn’t see snow early and threw out the rest of the forecast.
I only wish I could speak to them as they were getting angry with me. Really. Most of the time the anger is misguided.
I make my share of mistakes, but the biggest problem with blown forecasts is that people sometimes hear something other than what I say. That’s why perception is so much more important than the actual numbers.
