NOAA is always full of shit, you get the amount of snowfall they say will happen maybe 20% of the time. Usually it's always less.

You're pretty much right, I'm just biased because of the times I've woke up in the morning expecting a foot, and actually getting 2" of crap.

I disagree, around here it is always pretty accurate.

And yes, those numbers are the maximum possible, obviously.
