Sometimes I love it when the forecast is wrong!

Friday morning the forecast was for a low of 8 last night and a high of 30 today. By last nights news they had changed to 13 for last night and 32 today. It got down to 25 last night and it's sunny and 43 right now. Time to break out the bike!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Here's the mistake I want to see.

Tune in tomorrow night to the back-up (weekend) weather guy: "Folks, I need to apologize. I predicted it was only going to be 40 degrees today. Actually, it was 80. Sorry about that mistake. I just read what the weather service issues, adding a few neat graphics. It's really not my fault."

Hey, get rid of that freakishly cold-lookin' avatar! Even if it is your backyard! Reminds me of how cold it is here, just across town.

I like when they put the scare in you with a snow storm, then nothing happens.

I forgot! They did that last weekend. 6 to 12 inches was predicted. It rained a little. They're really seldom right around here.
