don't ask the weathermen

perhaps this will be a lame blog entry, but it's something that erks me. plus, it gets me one closer to the magical 300 entry. why is it magical? i relly don't know.

to business at hand...

some weeks ago one of our esteemed weathermen (it wasn't a woman, so don't worry about this one, hoss) who said we were all done with the 80s. his exact words were, "we won't see temperatures like this until next year."

my hairy brows furrowed. i doubted it. and 'm not a freaking meteorologist. i may have used a few curse words. but what i really thought in good ole pg or even g rating was, "no way, please don't say that."

the weather folks around here have a tendency to freak out when it comes to threatening weather or make predictions that are outlandish, like mr. weatherman did a few weeks back.

why was i skeptical?

perhaps because after the wonderfully cool temps of mid-september, things went awry. notice that earlier this week the temps went back up to the upper 80s with extreme humidity (for us, anyway) and we even set some records yesterday or monday.

i know of indian summer and so forth, but it is ridiculous for these morons to make those kinds of temperature predictions when they don't really know, do they? i think they can maybe be safe saying it won't reach the 80s when we've hit december -- but you never know. a recall a few years back, temps rose quite a bit.

i guess i'm bitching because yesterday i rushed out for a 4 p.m. assignment. i walked from home to work, then off to my assignment, which usually is not a problem if the weather is kind. not so yesterday. it was a walk to the maas center. i arrived right before the speaker took the stage. but i was sweaty and out of breath. i felt peole were looking at me and perhaps even edging away from me (it was a packed room). yes, i'm being pissy (ask krista as she heard me curse several times when i dropped off my stuff at work).

ok, i'm done with that. today is much better. after a short walk to the library, i didn't break a sweat.

good times.

Thank you for sparing the Weather Goddess in this entry. She would never speak in such a short-sighted way.
