    Definitely not for NYC but property and possibly lives may have been saved none-the-less. We only received 3-5 inches of snow and my commute to work was still triple what it normally is. People still drive on the highway as if they're invincible no matter what the weather and road conditions are and that recklessness causes accidents and costs lives.

    How Meteorologists Botched The Blizzard Of 2015 | FiveThirtyEight

    This is a good article showing how/why the forecast was read so wrong. It was based on one forecasting model that had been correct in the past, whilst other forecasting models were ignored.

    Short term meteorology and long term climate change use completely different metrics and models and this incident has zero bearing on climate change predictions.
