Re: [californiadisasters] Admin Read: Stop Shooting the Messenger

Well-said, Kim.

I think it's accurate what we've said lately (actually, I said it in this
form), the forecasts tend to be more than we actually get, but as you've
said, this is really the only responsible choice. We just noted recently the
flooding in the Sepulveda Basin: There was considerable damage and LOTS of
blaming following the LACK OF "alarmism".

The weather is what it ends up being; the forecasts are only guesses,
however well-educated.

I fault no one involved with the forecasting, with one exception: I DO wish
they'd stop phrasing it as if they, themselves, were making it happen
("We're going to move in these clouds,...").

(And for those who are disappointed when we don't get the big storms, well,
"oh well".)
