I wonder how much overblown forecasts cost the economy.
How many people will miss work, cancel appointments or skip going to movies or out to eat, bag Christmas shopping, etc.?
Because of a prediction. It's "supposed" to snow bigtime.
I know a medical clinic that can't properly serve its patients tomorrow, whether the snow is bad or not, because the courier service that hauls blood tests to the lab announced its drivers won't work tomorrow.
So patients can't get the right care, doctors and staff waste their time, labs have lower than normal workloads, and on it ripples.
I guess now we should hope it really does sock it to us.
