This and That

I really don't know who to believe anymore. The weather guy from last night said we might get showers today in the afternoon. The morning weather guy says we won't get anything today. Personally, I'm going to take the evening weather guy in his word. I looked at the radar to see what Texas is getting right now and I saw this. The red dot in where I am.

Yeah, it's working its way down towards us and it's building itself up. I expect it will hit sometime this afternoon around 1 or 2pm. It's on its way.
I found a new toy while I was surfing the web yesterday. Here's the site. https://www.flightradar24.com/29.3,-98.47/11
It's actually an in the air flight list almost like what the ATC's see. You can zero in on planes and if you hover or click your cursor over a plane icon a little window will pop up on the left and give you the flight path, speed and what kind of plane it is also it will give you the destination. This site covers all flights, private planes, government planes and helicopters too but you have to get up close to certain cities to see the little blips for helicopters and if there is no info then the plane or whatever is most likely government operated, like a fighter jet. It's kind of fun to monitor this stuff. I tracked a helicopter in Los Angeles for 3 minutes. That thing was moving everywhere. Also, I noticed there is hardly any air traffic over Ukraine. There were a few planes going in and out of there but there were also a few with no call signs when I hovered over them so they are obviously government planes. Traffic over certain countries is very limited and others look like beehives of activity. It's a bit of fun and info in case you want to track a flight a friend or family member is on. Just something to play with.
Well I have a few things I need to get to today so all y'all have a magical day

Weather forecasting is definitely an art, not a science.

I am of the opinion that the rain predictors just make a guess on what's happening at that moment. Then, the controller of the rain hose, laughs hysterically, and turns the water on full force or completely off.
