Weather Or Not

Am I the only one who noticed that the weathermeisters were calling for heavy snow last night and today in Coeur d'Alene and our suburb of Spokane? What's up with that? We've experienced light rain. At best. Or overcast skies. I enjoyed another noon walk along the shoreline today with nary a drop of rain hitting me. So how do the weithermeisters get away with such a miss — and yet we'll tune in again this evening and night to find out what the weather will be like tomorrow.

Question: Is there any occupation other than weather forecasting that maintains credibility despite occasional (frequent?) wrong forecasts?
