Anyone else fall for the snowstorm lie?

With the prediction of snow and freezing rain yesterday evening I decided it was time to put the Lotus away. I spent a few hours moving things around and putting it out of the way just to find out this morning they were wrong. It would really be nice to have a job where I could be wrong so often.

I had it out all day Friday and Saturday. It's not all bad, I still have my Boxster to play with. Last tire purchase I put normal tires on it in order to drive it longer in the year.

Our weather people suck here too... We had the opposite problem.

We were told snow Saturday & Sunday producing 1-3 inches on the valley floor.
Well we got snow... 20 inches of it (on the valley floor)

Played my fall league playoffs and championship game last night and it was snowing by abt 930. By the 5th inning the infield had a light dusting of snow.
Of course it didnt stick overnight.

It is admitted by all that he was much addicted to women, as well as very expensive in his intrigues with them, and that he debauched many ladies of the highest quality; among whom were Posthumia, the wife of Servius Sulpicius; and Lollia, the wife of Aulus Gabinius.
