Default Never listen to the weather Bimbo

All week the forecast says rain Saturday partly sunny Sunday. So I figure I'll do the honeydo's Saturday and go boating (first time this season) Sunday. Guess what, Saturday is mostly sunny and absolutely no rain. Now the forecast says it's gonna rain Sunday, crap I screwed up. Well Sunday morinig comes, it's sunny. Put on the local weather Bimbo who says it's mostly cloudy and will rain in the afternoon maybe thunder storms. Look out the window it's sunny, put on the weather channel, same forecast mostly cloudy and will rain, look out the window it's sunny. Well to end a long ponderous post, I went out on the boat and it was a great sunny day, even got some sunburn.
Moral of the story, leave off the forecasters and look out the window, it's much more accurate.
Hope no one listened to the forecast and cranked up the big blocks.

You got that right!!!!!!!!!

I never watch the weather channel or news for the weather. Have had a couple of weekends ruined because of wrong forcast. Rain stay home= It no rain!, No rain forcast....go boating= it rains.

If I want to go to the lake, it ain't raining, sun is shining,..... I go boating!
You wanta listen to the weather channel, you stay home.
