Even Willard Can be Wrong

Our Kansas town was supposed to have a spring-like temp in the 70s today. The weather people were off a bit and it only reached the 50s. With the whining going on you would think the governor issued a proclamation declaring nobody could have a left arm. Most people fail to recognize the fact that sometimes we get what we pay for. A weather report is free information from the radio, TV, Internet, or lady in the checkout line. Mark Twain said that we shouldn’t complain about the weather. Without it, 9 out of 10 people wouldn’t have anything to talk about.

You're right...the weather was a little off today. I used to think that weather forcasts were wrong about 90 percent of the time. Actually they're probably RIGHT about 90 percent of the time. If the forcast says we'll get rain, we generally do somewhere in the area. Temperatures are a little more inaccurate, but I imagine predicting temperature isn't easy.

We do seem to get bent out of shape if the weather forcast is either a little wrong or WAY off. Just our nature I guess. BTW: Pet peave: when we're having nice weather, those who say, "We're going to pay for this sooner or later." Who exactly are we going to pay?
