|01:05 am - The weather today ...|
... was very nice. I'm beginning to think that not only do the forecasts not accurately forecast our weather, but each one precludes that particular weather outcome from actually occurring. All the forecasts that I saw for today told us that we would be getting cloud, rain, wind, frogs, and generally lots of miserable weather. Instead, it was bright and sunny for much of the day, and quite pleasant outside, at least by the time I got moving.
(I'm a little surprised that there isn't a Weather Channel over here - about 6 years ago we had Foxtel (in Melbourne), and there was one, and in our brief stay in San Francisco on the way over here, there was a Weather Channel available there. Even though the forecasts rarely bear any connection to reality, it could still be entertaining watching them twist and turn as they try to cope with the whims of the local climate).
Current Mood: happy
Current Music: Graveland.

I loved the US weather channel. I could have watched it all day. But I did find it amusing that weather ended at the borders of the US, particularly when we were heading from NY to Toronto, and there was nothing given for anywhere north of the line.
I didn't realise Foxtel had a weather channel - please tell me they have world weather as well?
I have to admit, I can't remember - we last had Foxtel in 99 or so, before they completely failed to reconnect us after we moved.
has a better memory than me, and apparently it did show world weather as well as Oz)
