    Which weather/person do you believe? One says we are going to get 3 to 5 inches of snow here in KC this weekend and another one says 5 to 10 inches. Wish I could have been as inaccurate as they are when I was working. Now that I have retired and want to be out and about the weather kind of matters.

    None of them know none of them really work any more. They all just sit there reading there computer models. It's snowing now so I guess we are going to get some. Although it was still 36 degrees when I checked last.

    Weatherman's the only person in the world that can be wrong 90% of the time, and still keep their job... personally, I have no idea how bad it's gonna be. It's been snowing here for about four hours now...decent sized flakes, too. I guess if I had to guess on the ammount, (like every forecaster there's ever been) then it would be....(Red ponders thoughtfully)... idk...but atleast I'll admit it!

    I hear it's headed for So. Illinois. I would like to send it somewhere else, but I guess I will take it. I want listen to the forecasters and worry I will just measure it after it arrives. I hate the Ice and I know alot of you outwest can relate to that. Everyone stay Safe and Warm. Spring is just ahead.:lol:

    I can't believe with the equiptment they have it could be that tough of a job, they were saying we was to get up to 6" and we have 2 or less, but I'm glad they were wrong this time!

    We got about 4" here in Parkville. Its really pretty - but was a heavy snow, great for making a snow man or snow ball fights. But I'm old enough not to try either.

    I have 6 inches here just out of Wrigt City. I really remember what it looks like. ENOUGH for this year. All I ask is mid 40s. No ice on the ramps. Thats all.

    The only weather I believe is my weather rock that I have dangling up off the ground from a string outside.

    This rock is the perfect weather indicator, it
    never fails. It is more accurate than your local
    weather person.
    This
    [SIZE=+1] [/SIZE][SIZE=+1] rock is the living word and
    is 100% correct.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1] This[/SIZE][SIZE=+1] [/SIZE][SIZE=+1] is how it works:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]a dry rock means fair weather.
    a wet rock means it's raining.
    a dusty rock means a dust storm.
    a swaying rock means it's windy.
    a shadow under the rock means it's sunny.
    a white rock means it's snowing.
    if the rock is jumping up and down, an
    earthquake is upon us.
    if the bottom of the rock is under water it's a
    flood.[/SIZE]

    Hey Robert?

    What is a warm water channel? Just curious, I haven't heard that phrase recently!

    Thanks

    coal powered electric plants run water through the turbins to keep them cooled down. this water is released back into the river or lake they are located on. On a cold morning you will see lots of steam and the water truly is warm. Good place to get bait and sometimesa a good place to catch some nice catfish.

    Hey Bob,

    Thanks for the information. We don't have any electric producing dams around the KC areas. I don't think that Smithville Lake/Dam is anything but a flood control dam. I thought that's what it was but was not sure.
