    Man, what a gorgeous day it turned out to be! Took a late lunch drive and had a blast.

    What's the deal with our weather forecasters these days? They say rain and we get cloudy and dry (with a spot of sun).

    i took my 3 year old daughter out for a drive today in my new 79 308 gts...fun fun fun...

    ...by chance the owner of "dicks" burgers was at the broadway joint today signing autographs...i pulled up and a news crew swung the camera toward my car...i think it was king5 tv..no van so not too sure of station...

    hope tomorrow is just as beautiful a day...

    what do you mean "these days"? they're usually 95% inaccurate. it should be the complete opposite, just forecast rain and they'd be wrong only 5%. i just hope they don't gamble.

    They weren't too far off about the snow we had. I'll give them that. Lately, I think they'd have better accuracy if they just look out their windows.

    I've started calling them "post-casters". They're pretty good at telling us what the weather was yesterday!!

    Missed another beautiful day in West Sound...sun was out most of the day yesterday, but car is still with Carlo.

    Willis, when I was flying around here 35 years ago we automatically assumed that we would be flying in rain ( and usually did ) and some times we were pleasantly surprised. BUT we never paid attention to the forecast offered by " THE WEATHERGUESSERS ."

    Hey, Bob! Happy New Year!

    The weatherguessers, as you called it, got it wrong for my area again today. I think they just want people to be prepared for the worst. Either that or they're spending way too much time looking at their computer models. :)
