Minor annoyances

This weather app is beginning to annoy me.

That's today's weather. It was also yesterday's weather. And the day before that. Tomorrow is always looking good, partly cloudy, warmish, and with truly spring-like temperatures promised for about 72 hours away. When I looked at the forecast this past Friday, it showed the current day as rather crappy (freezing drizzle), but Saturday was going to be good. Pshaw! Saturday arrived, and suddenly it had the same icon that Friday had boasted: the branches with the ice hanging from them. But, hey, Sunday was going to be good.

Sunday got here, and there it was again: the depressing branches with the icicles. But Monday. . . Monday was going to be warm and sunny. Well, it's Monday. The icicles are back, the skies are overcast, and it's not exactly beach temperatures outside.Tuesday, on the other hand, is going to be not bad and by Thursday it'll be time to break out the sunblock.

And pigs will fly.

At least it's no longer claiming the good weather will hit tomorrow -- it's now shoving it 48 hours into the future.


  1. I am sorry . Here I was feeling sorry that it's my daughter's Spring Break and it is in the low 60's and overcast & windy, rain on Thursday.

  2. It was sunny and pretty much a not coat day here, I loved it even though it wasn't what the weather report predicted.

  3. In general, I find most minors to be annoying.

  4. Best predictor of tomorrow's weather is today's. 80%.

  5. "All The Good Names Were Taken" has been included in the A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.


My space, my rules: play nice and keep it on topic.
