Chart Madness

When you think Too Much Information and associate it with your boss telling you about his weekend getaway, well, you clearly haven’t been to the NOAA site.

The hourly weather forecast, which is buried in the bottom right of the screen when you’re viewing the 7 day forecast? THAT is too much information.

Wind chill, temp and dewpoint every hour on the hour for the next 48 hours? Yep.

Relative humidity, sky cover, chance of precipitation? That too. Thunder, rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain? Well of course!

The predictions are very localized – just key in your area name here and then pick the hourly weather graph down in the bottom right.

One of the most useful things on this is the wind predictions. If you’re planning on tromping around today you want to be safely inside for the night by 10p when winds hit 20+mph.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
