I've been staring at the National Weather Service website quite a lot lately.
First I was worried about this hurricane, worried that as it peters out across the NE US it would dump rain on us. More specifically, that it would dump rain on my move. Well, it looks like I'll dodge that bullet, since the rain should be past by Wednesday. Just for fun I typed in my new zipcode to see what the weekend holds in store, since I'll be there this weekend. I was greeted with this:
