Out on a limb

Srsly? A four-byline story to point out not just that "forecasters say it is hard to say right now what the winter months will bring" but -- ready?

Although it's too early to tell, this winter's weather could be near normal or just a bit warmer than normal.

Perhaps with a little less risk-taking in the forecast department and a little more attention to the end product, we could address sentences like this one too:
The prices will be 54 cents per cubic feet for the utility's 1.7 million natural gas customers in 45 counties around the state, down from 62 cents in February, he said.

As a customer, I hate to guess -- 54 cents per how many cubic feet?

I guess that answers the age-old question: How many reporters does it take to screw up a story.
