F-You! You weather widget on Macs!

I check the weather every morning before leaving for school. It said it was a Clear Sunny Sky. I thought hey, why not ride the bike to school? It would be my first time taking it there. I strap on my gear and head out to University of Houston. The ride from Sugar Land wasn't bad... I got to take HOV! I noticed how lovely the weather was.. bright sky... chilly breeze.

I get to campus, park the bike, and get to the library. I open the laptop to check the weather again and it says Scattered Thunder Storms. I look outside the window and a rush of gray clouds is about to fill the sky. Homoerectous.

Hopefully the rain dies down before sun set (if it even does rain) so the ground isn't wet when I go home.


F-You Weather predictor, you failed me.

Was debating on whether this would be Bike related, or off topic...... Deals with riding... so... I picked the Bike Related section.

Riding in the rain can be fun . I have spent hours riding in the rain on my zrx,my pilot powers grip really good in the rain . Just be careful on the turns and take more time slowing down & starting off. It's good to ride in all conditions.

LOL. Screw the included weather widget. Goto wunderground.com and download their widget. So much better and wunderground is the most accurate out of all the sites I use for weather.
