    Default OT: wanna drive yourself bonkers?

    Start looking at the Accuweather 15 day forecast 15 days before
    Memorial Day weekend, and look at it every day, hoping it won't rain.
    Then watch the forecast change every freakin' day. It's the first
    *really big* family camping trip since Labor Day, 2007.

    When I look for a day a week or so in advance, I'm happy if it says rain.
    Given the accuracy of long range forecasting, it assures a good sunny day.

    I often use the archives/almanac of a local TV station's website to
    see what happened on a certain date for the past 5 or 6 years. It's
    been terrifically accurate and allowed me to schedule things like new
    carpeting, outdoor work, outdoor parties, etc., for days with no bad
    weather.

    I use weathernetwork and find that the short range forecast is usually
    pretty accurate. The long range forecast (7 day) is a scrap shoot. It
    is amazing how the forecast for that 7th day gets modified as it gets
    closer.

    You think that's fun, that's the weekend I do to the Indy 500! We all
    missed the race one year when they had to push it all the way back to
    Tues, because it was rained out Sun and Mon both!! :-( But I've seen
    other Indy 500's which were cool and rainy, sunny and hot, sometimes
    pushed back to Monday, sometimes start and stop because of rain
    through either day. Once we got tired of waiting for the green flag to
    go back up and walked all the way back to the cars and were having
    beers when we heard the unmistakable ROAR of 200+ MPH Indy cars from a
    distance!! We high-tailed it back up to the track and saw the finish
    of that race! Yay!

    Springtime in the Midwest, gotta love it! Funny part is the next week
    is almost always clear sunny and hot!

    In Texas, there is never a day under 10% CoP.

    (so this means is REALLY going to rain next Friday)

    We're having a dead end garage sale next Saturday.
