Plenty o’ Rain

Filed under:General — eric @ 3:06 am

It has rained every day for the last two weeks. It’s been very welcome, of course, as our water table is woefully under where we should be. I looked at the Weather Channel’s outlook for the region, and saw that they’ve just given up trying to predict it. Every day for the next two weeks lists “Scattered Thunderstorms”.

I used to think the weather channel was pretty neat. Then I realized that their predictive abilities fall to nearly zero when looking further out than, say, half an hour. Generally, they’re pretty good at stating the current conditions, though even that’s been spotty lately.
