That, and meteorologists lie to us.  ;) ;D  I trust the weather report when it's happening.

"Bob, it seems the storm has finally hit us, back to you." (as the reporter is getting pushed sideways by 60MPH winds)

Roger listened to the doom and gloom weather yesterday, and didn't ride to work. It was gorgeous all day til 4PM. Old people watch the weather alot, they have nothing better to do. I told Rog he better stop watching the weather channel or I'll have to get him some Centrum Silver! ::) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I had 3 bolts of lightning hit so close to my house we heard the SNAP all 3x as they hit.  It was within a few hundred yards.  The resultant thunder actually knocked pictures off my mantle...  CRAZY insane...

And for meteorologists(sp?), I like the comedian's answer.  Make death-row inmates predict the weather.  If they get it wrong, they go to the chair.  If they get it right, they can live another day!

Weather forcasts past about 2 or 3 days are pretty much worthless.

Since weather is a chaotic dynamic system, it is by its nature not predictable. That is, there will never be a computer model good enough to predict weather very accurately more than a few days.



You sound just like a Physics teacher! ;D ;D ;D

Roger is a wuss. I heard no mention of snow so I rode yesterday. Left at 5:45 am and returned home at 9:45 pm. The new Aerostitch Darien jacket and pants worked great.

And I told him just that when he got home. I really rubbed it in. He starts the season the same way every year, and by the and of it, he's riding when it's 35 degrees out.  ;D

I knew I could count on you. Got to get more bikes on the road.

Tends to be more difficult to get started and then harder to stop. After the first ride or 2, I just can't go back to the truck. No snow, I should be riding to work everyday until at least November. 42 to 45 mpg doesn't hurt much either.

Rog gets 50 MPG regualrly, and he's gets upset if it gets down to 48 MPG. With fuel prices like they are, he's going to save around $70 to $80 per month on gas, so riding will be a joy! ;D

BTW I left Jason a message to give you a call. If he doesn't let me know, I'll go rough up the shrimp.
