Watching the weather reports on TV is always a little depressing.

As I listen to the newscasters this morning they are announcing that the "rain will push out about noon" and the afternoon is going to be sunny and warm. Then I actually watch the screen and see a different story altogether. As the radar shows the rain passing overhead and the clock indicates timing, it may be noon in NYC, but by the time it finally leaves eastern Long Island the clock reads 5:00. Big difference! So much for nice sunshine this afternoon...and so much for the "local" weather report.

Of course there are times when I don't mind the difference, like when the temperature shows as 85 degrees and I know here it will be a good ten degrees less than that. But in terms of the radar, one surely needs to watch the weather report because simply listening to it simply won't tell you the story.

And today at least, that means rain all the day long...
