I apologize for all of you "out of towners" who get to hear my rant against local weathermen. I should preface this by saying that I, like all good Oklahoma-bred children, were taught that Gary England IS the supreme authority on all things Oklahoma weather related. I believe this with all my heart. I *stormcloud* Gary England.
Have you ever noticed that Mike Morgan is just wound a little too tight when it comes to weather. Seriously, if it's April or May, and you want to watch something on NBC, Fughetta 'bout it. Mike Morgan will be on there flappin his yap about dime sized rain drops in some county 80 miles away. He preempts more tv shows than any other network weatherman around here.
That's why when channel 9 preempts something, you know it's serious. If Gary breaks in, it's to say... Get off your hiney and get in the 'fraidy hole because your house might blow away.
Anyway, same rule applies to winter weather. I know we get some nasty ice storms, but I remember last year when Mike Morgan predicted 1-3" of ice and it didn't even rain... All it did was make everyone rush to the store like it was the apocalypse and stock up on canned goods and bottled water, while it takes me 30 minutes to make it out of the store with some toilet paper. Last night, MM said that there was a "100% possibility of a winter storm". (Isn't there always a 100% possibility?) Meanwhile, the weatherman in shining armor said only a 80% chance of precipitation (not even snow for sure) and nothing about accumulation.
Mr. Morgan came out with this prediction today....
