Yesterday while the kids were at their camps, dance for Campbell and soccer for Evan, I decided to go for a run. The sky looked really cloudy and dark. I don’t mind running in the rain, but storms aren’t my favorite. I checked the radar, which showed nothing, not even a speck. The hourly forecast said 0% chance of rain for several hours. Still, somehow, I ended up running most of my run in a light rain.
It was pretty pleasant, but confusing. How is it possible to be THAT cloudy when nothing at all showed on the radar? I don’t really understand weather. For example, there has been light rain today, and the radar looks like this:
That is more how I expect a rainy-day radar to look.
Anyhow, on that topic, which weather website do you like the best? I used to use weather.com, but their links on the page drove me nuts. My least favorite types of stories on Facebook are those with the lame titles, like “_______ and you won’t believe what happened next!” The weather.com website is full of them. How can I take weather seriously from that type of website? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a screenshot of today’s weather.com page (that part of it at least):
I recently discovered the National Weather Service website.
Everything you need is all on that main page, no clicking around, and there are no ads or links to stupid stories. That still doesn’t solve yesterday’s rain issue, though, as the radar is the same on all weather sites.
Meanwhile, the kids were having fun at camp. Here is Campbell at dance camp, loving pom poms of all things:
Evan was at a soccer camp:
I seriously cannot imagine 3 hours of soccer or 4 hours of dance but both kids really loved their camps.
Anyhow. Have you ever run in rain when it didn’t look rainy on the radar? Which weather website do you like?
