Brooklyn is a rainy, gloomy mess today.


I have this annoying habit where I watch the entire 10 minute weather forecast segment of the evening news and after it's over, realize I completely tuned out the entire thing.

"Wait… so what's the weather supposed to be like tomorrow?"

I've always wished the weather could just be reported in a simpler manner, with less words, less mumbo-jumbo about dew point temperatures, blahblahblah… just tell me if it's going to rain or not already! and will I need a sweater or what?

Enter this website. DC artist Rania of goshdarnknit has just made my day by turning me on to this. Goodbye TV weather forecasters, with your perfectly coiffed hair, perma-grins and bad segues. I now have all I need to know, thank you very much.

You may also want to try this site: http://umbrellatoday.com/
It will text message you if you need to bring an umbrella to work or not and you can set the time to receive the message!

Just another neat tool!
Have a great weekend!

I thought that I was the only one with "TV Weather ADD"! I don't care where the weather comes from or why it manifests as it does, just how it will affect me. So I just check my local station's weather website, if I remember.
