Thumb Award YOU DON’T NEED A WEATHERMAN TO KNOW WHICH WAY THE WIND BLOWS

Thumbs Down to our local weathermen. We’ve done this before, and we’ll keep doing it until they stop their panicky behavior. “Another major ice storm on the way!” they screamed at the end of January. Schools closed, meetings were cancelled, the city braced. Nothing. (To be fair, though, good old Harold Taft at Channel 5 got it right, noting a mass of warm air moving up from the Gulf that the others somehow missed. How does a weatherman overlook a mass of air? Perhaps it got lost in the color radar false ground clutter echoes.)
