The meteorologists are just taunting me

April 11, 2009

I wake up this morning, and check the weather. Yesterday, the forecast was partly cloudy, 61 degrees at Banks. It’s completely grey outside. National Weather Service is now saying thunderstorms this afternoon. I hate weather.

On the brighter side, weather.com says partly cloudy, high of 56. That sounds much better!

Any bets on which service I’m going to listen to?


Time to get on the water!

April 11, 2009

The forecast for Banks today is 61 degrees, partly cloudy. Time to get on the river! Now I just need to find other people who want to go boating – a couple of the people I called are going skiing instead! Skiing in April – what’s wrong with them? It’s clearly kayaking season.

Unfortunately, none of my friends have switched into kayaking mode. So I’ll take my usual approach: get to Banks around noon and wait for someone else who wants to paddle to show up! It works great during the summer, this time of the year it’s probably a gamble.

Look for a brief report tomorrow evening – happy boating everyone!
