To all of those people whining about there only being several inches of snow by tomorrow instead of the two dozen or so -- you only reveal how ignorant you are about meteorology. Forecasting a storm even one to two days in advance is based on mathematical models, and these models are still imperfect; thus, they make mistakes. All the models give are probabilities that have to be translated into everyday language. So please, please give it a break; the forecasts were reasonable based on the different models.
Yes 8 inches of snow is regular for NY - but who knew yesterday that it would be only 8 inches? I've lived in Asia as well, and weather forecasters from Tokyo to Hong Kong also missed on typhoon tracks. It's the weather and forecasting it isn't a perfect science. So stop revealing your ignorance of statistics and stop whining.

And yet we are supposed to take them as gospel when predicting global warming 50 and 100 years from now. (Gospel = Evangeli)http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/27/nyregion/new-york-blizzard.html
