Weather or not

I like to keep track of the weather. Here you see an external digital thermometer that hangs on the window outside of my dining room. The temper- ature you see is in my driveway at about 1:30 p.m. It is somewhat cooler out on the street. It is overcast, and has been raining off and on out here in (ahem) sunny California.

In yesterday's post I note that the local newspaper predicted a high of 71 degrees, while the online weather high was 63. The actual high? 67 degrees. I think that's called splitting the difference, or maybe compromise.

In case you missed the comment on the weather from LynnM, here it is, 'cause I think it is funny:

"One thing that really bugs me about my BBC weather page is when it predicts something like: Today's High 58, Low 45, Currently 40. Or Today's High 65, Low 55, Currently 70."

The weather report is even right sometimes.

Now I don't know if you will find this video funny or not, but it sure looked like a lot of fun. Turn up the volume!

  2. That was fun! Knitter marianne has a blog though she doesn't post very often. Her last post http://knotminding.blogspot.com/2009/01/its-been-awhile.html

    has an embedded YouTube clip on the bottom you might enjoy. I'm sure she won't mind if you don't read the clog and shawl parts.
