Trying to surf the east coast will turn you into an amateur
meteorologist even faster than it will sent you to the looney bin.
In my experience, they've got a pretty good 72 hour line on the
winter weather pattern. If it's Monday and I see what looks to be a
solid swell setting up for Thursday, consider me booked.
OTOH: A hurricane anywhere in the Atlantic basin and they can't get a
solid forecast out 24 hours.
