Yeah, I keep seeing those comments and think of that article as a "weather wishing well" -- it's bizarre that people keep asking for weather predictions on it. They never get answers, but they keep asking! (Each time I see a new question there, I think "how would I know?" I've been tempted to remove the article altogether.)
But I figured out the other day why that ancient article is so popular. If you do a google search on "snow predictions", that page comes up as #1. Number one! Don't ask me why. I guess no one else on the web has written anything better on snow predictions, in Google's opinion. Oh well.
