OH YEAH, WELL WHY AREN’T YOU BETTER AT MAKING GUACAMOLE RECIPES WITHOUT PEAS?

Slander. Outright SLANDER I tell you. Yesterday the New York Times had the AUDACITY to criticize America’s shortcomings in predicting extreme weather.

Lemme tell you what, yankee news…

[Actually reads NYT article]

Oh, okay. I guess some good points are made. The article does oversimplify the forecasting process by assuming that numerical models are the entire basis of our predictions, but the critique of the models themselves and the way our public sector inhibits their improvements seems valid to my semi-educated private sector opinion.

We predicted what The Weather Channel is going to name their winter storms this year. Time to place your bets on how many we get right. (UPDATE: I wrote the morning glory last night, and TWC just released their winter storm names minutes before this article was scheduled. We went 0 for 26, but got REALLY CLOSE with our Kors guess.)

We are looking for bloggers! Yes, that means you.

FROM THE INTERWEBS

Watch out for those crosswinds. The Capital Weather Gang shares a video of a Boeing 737 narrowly avoiding disaster while attempting to land in dangerous weather conditions in Prague.

Much of the central and eastern US is experiencing record high temperatures this week, and #Octoaster is your new favorite hashtag on #wxtwitter.

It’s baaaaaaaaaaaack.
