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.

  1. Must say I watched the weather channel to see handsome young Carl Parker. No matter what the weather, it was always sunny when I saw him (pretty nifty trick too, since he was on usually at night).

    You must be having our rainy season! I was expecting more, but after two days of straight rain it quit. It’s been almost a week of sun now. More rain likely on the way though, so I better hang out the laundry while I can.
