All of us East Coasters went to bed today thinking we’d wake up with 5 feet of white snow outside our homes with no way to even open our front doors for the next two days, according to meteorologists. Most people stayed up all night thinking work would be canceled due to the “historic” amount of snow we were supposed to be getting. WELP– looks like the joke is on us because it is perfectly fine outside! I woke up this morning to look outside and my block has snow, but only a few inches. Meteorologist Gary Szatkowski, who is in charge of the National Weather Service’s office in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, tweeted out a sincere apology via his Twitter account to say sorry for the huge mistake he and his team made when broadcasting the prediction for this storm that never came.
“My deepest apologies to many key decision makers and so many members of the general public,” Szatkowski says. “You made a lot of tough decisions expecting us to get it right, and we didn’t. Once again, I’m sorry.” Check out all of his apologetic tweets over in the gallery and let us know your stories from #Blizzard2015 below!
