I had stocked up on supplies, the kids schools were closed and we were all ready for the GREAT BLIZZARD of 2008. At 7 am, no snow, but soon we were assured a tremendous onslaught of the white stuff would descend. At 10 am a few flurries and some wind. By Noon, nothing. A few moments of wind and snow in the afternoon, but essentially nada. Dang it. I don't blame Portland Public Schools for closing I suppose, but geez, how could the forecast have been so wrong?
Now I know how most people feel about economists at this point in time (or perhaps in all points in time).
