Today's official weather report is Overcast.

Overcast is a bullshit word. Let's just go ahead and call the weather what it is. Awful.

Its cloudy, its damp, everything is wet. Cars make that really annoying sound as their tires channel water away and grip the road.

Many words can be used to describe today, but overcast is not one of them.

Overcast? Overrated.

Other Butterfly Post

And like a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, so too does winter become spring.

When does that happen you ask?

The Butterfly Effect

So you know how sometimes something starts off totally sucking and then winds up being ok at the end? Well it happens. Its called "the butterfly effect". That is what today is.

This morning? Terrible. This afternoon? Ok. Sun is out. Temperature is climbing. This are looking up.

If you're like me you're going to be busting out the above ground pool soon. Here's an instructional video teaching you how to make the pool slightly less above ground. (This is called "burying" in Canada) You're welcome.

What A Waste

Today's weather is an absolute waste of a day.

It's cold. It's cloudy. It's windy.

There is nothing good about it.

We are officially in mid-March. The weather should be starting to turn.

Today's weather is such a waste that I'm not even going to come up with anything clever to write.

Here's a video.

Seriously not ok, weather.

Some negative outdoor weather.

So, not over weather?

Stop! Nothing outside's wonderful.

What an ugly day. I've decided to make today's weather into an acrostic. Here it goes.


It's damp, wet, and just a general disaster. I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take this anymore.

In honor of all things gray, I dedicate this song to nice weather.

The Day Weather Upgraded Its Version of Windows

So yesterday's weather was completely unremarkable and awful.

Today its raining. It's a little warmer but still cold.

It seems like we went from Windows Vista to Windows 7. It still sucks, there is still ice everywhere, and we get stupid new features that aren't actually new features. For example, today I get to wear a water-resistant jacket because of the rain and cold. Yesterday I got to wear the same jacket because of the cold and afternoon rain. But hey my windows snap into place if I'm too lazy to resize them, right?

And now the history of W(indows + eather). Yes, I factored out a W to highlight the similarities.

The Sun Is A Liar

It looked so promising. The sun was shining. I guess that was all, but still that's something.

But then I went outside. Still cold. Still icy. And now, the sun is reflecting off the ice and basically become a blinding beam of non-atmosphere-warming light. Very mature sun.

Hard to find fellow sun haters, so here's the best slash first video I found:

Can't Be Beat

So the weather thinks it can stump me. Thinks it can throw out a completely unremarkable day and I'll have nothing to say. Apologies to Bart Scott, but I cannot be beat.

After I told the wind whats up yesterday and posted a video of some ducks being blown around (to mixed reactions), the wind packed its bags and hit the dirt. No wind today.

After I compared Winter to an illness, the temperature climbed above freezing. Being outside isn't awful.

But then the weather gets to thinking its all big and bad and sprinkles down some rain. I went all John-John Mackey on that rain and now its gone.

Today's summary: gray, damp, chilly, could be worse.

Apparently CCR didn't get the memo about me:

Wind? More Like Lose-d

I don't care what the temperature is. I don't care that it is only 95% cloudy today. That wind is awful.

My estimation of the wind chill is whatever the temperature is that makes humans most miserable. Not quite cold enough to freeze solid, but cold enough to think you're going to.

The wind really blew today's chances of nice weather.

Also, you may notice the site innovation on the sidebar. Twunderground is now your one stop shop for weather opinions AND weather facts.

Now for the destructive power of wind:

For Russ

Looks sunny. Can't really tell, haven't been outside. Victory?

For the record, the weather gets sick all time. See, e.g., Winter.

So there's that saying about how March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.

Yeah well that saying is bullshit. I went outside today. Everything is just ice. It's ridiculous.

I did some research on this. The scholars at the Wikipedia Institute provide the following map:

The green is where lions live (not counting zoos). Coincidentally, the green is where ice doesn't live.

In conclusion, it is still cold and icy and I'm not happy about it.
