Much Snowdo About Nothing Much

So far we have not gotten the 15 inches that was promised for the Detroit area.

Overnight we received about 3-4 inches, but it is now coming down more heavily so maybe we'll see a total accumulation of a foot or so over the course of the day. In other words, not a disaster by any stretch of the imagination. It is nice to work comfortably from home and watch the snow come down out the window rather than have to drive in it.

As to why the wrong prediction of fifteen inches was made, I'd say it was due to a female meteorologist's prediction being off.

Its not really her fault. Most girls have been told repeatedly since their teens that this (hold your thumb slightly spaced from your index finger) is 12 inches, so you can see how such a mistake can occur.
