It’s been a couple of rough weeks for us who don’t like
saunas! It’s actually been good gardening weather.
Everything here is thriving. Best year in a few.

I only mowed the lawn 4 times and went over the high
spots with the whipper sniper once. I think I can get away
with only a couple more times.

Nope. We'll have a week of rain and then the grass will
grow rapidly again. Last mow will be in October. Enjoy!

The Weather Network forecasts 45mm of rain from Tuesday to Friday.

Which prognosticator will be right? Neither?

The Weather Network is a private, for-profit company.
They exaggerate everything (watch them when a hurricane is
anywhere in the Atlantic and compare their wind speed
guessing to any other guesser.) Why do they do this? To
attract viewers like you! T hen they can charge more for
advertising slots.

All weather forecasts are usually off, but The Weather
Network is by far the worst in terms of huge errors.

Why do you support ultra-capitalist outfits, you
bourgeoisie greedy person? The bourgeoisie cannot exist
without constantly revolutionizing the instruments of
production, and thereby the relations of production, and
with them the whole relations of society.

The development of modern industry, therefore, cuts from
under its feet the very foundation on which the bourgeoisie
produces and appropriates products. What the bourgeoisie
therefore produces, above all, are its own grave diggers. Its
fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally
inevitable.

With love, HRM!

I think there is some truth in what you say but I think
you may also have gone a little overboard. Are all for
profit enterprises all evil all the time? Just asking
in case you might be just a tad paranoid. :)

I was joking, of course. But a buddy of mine who had a
power pole break off in a tropical storm about 15 years
ago. It was the one next to his house. His telephone and
cable were attached to the bottom of it, so AC, phone and
cable feeds were all ripped out of his house. It cost him a
fortune to have everything fixed and took a couple of
weeks before everything was repaired. So he's scared shitless
of tropical storms.

He has since monitored The Weather Network, EC, the NHC
and every other weather source. He pointed this phenomena
out to me and he is right. Everything on The Weather Network
seems 20-30% "worse" than anywhere else. It is just a guess
as to why, but the for-profit theory makes sense.

Yes, they are less conservative than EC, more willing to go
out on a limb. Besides being more pessimistic for back weather
predictions they are more optimistic for good weather predictions.
Just moderate their forecasts accordingly.
