So, did the glitch cause them to predict the weather correctly?

No, they still are at 50% :-'

Big deal. Put it in the same category as the State of New Hampshire printing vehical registrations with the words "horseless carriage." No threat to infrastructure here.

Agreed, but it's the first L4C glitch reported
that I know of.
