The way I (foggily) remember it - Nwsscott mysteriously appeared in the Accu forums a couple years back, and claimed a storm was going to do something that practically no models agreed with. I forget the details.
But there were a lot of people thought he was wacky, and that his screenname was a ruse. His communication didn't give any clues, and there were tiffs, feathers ruffled - including with some of the posters here I admire greatly and follow closely. His communication didn't really shed much light, so there was always skepticism.
Anyway - he was right about that storm. Not so much others. Some say it was luck. But he just confessed to being a retired NWS person (not sure what position thought).
I'll always take his obs into consideration.
Sorry- OT. How's about please no ice??
