Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

yahoo weather sucks

At first I thought it was just the weathermen. But my god yahoo weather has been so off. According to them right now in NYC 11:12am it is thunderstorming. Weird, I'm looking out my window and see sun. 2nd day in a row they have gotten it so wrong. I know... cmon all you anti-establishers... let's boycott Yahoo (sarcasticly proclaimed).

I too, use NOAA and another one called weatherunderground (i like the animated dopler better there). Weather.com has gone to hell, i can barely find where the weather is on that site.

weather.com is usually accurate, but often their forecasts are off by about 3-6 hours.

I wonder who was first

As for weather forcasts, I stand on the porch, look at the sky and decide whether I need a jacket or not .

Or if you are lazy you can ask the internet http://www.doineedajacket.com/

It is for the NYC area not just NYC. Someplace has some rain but lucky not here. It was a GOOD DAY.
