Habitual liars suffer from smokers cough.

liar liar

We have a little indoor/outdoor home weather station that sits on our kitchen counter.  It tells us all kinds of neat information like temperature and humidity with great accuracy.

It even provides a forecast for the next few hours.  We have found this to be somewhat less accurate.

If it predicts sun, we watch for rain.  If rain is in the forecast, it’s safe to plan a picnic.  Recently it showed partly sunny/partly cloudy/and rain all at the same time.  Instead, a snowstorm dropped over a foot of snow on us.

These errors may be a result of the fact that the station in still in its 14-day learning mode (as it warns us in large lettering under the weather prediction).

Then again, the 14-day learning mode is well into its fourth year.

At this point we’re not sure if the weather station is a really slow learner or just a dirty rotten liar.


  1. I live in Ireland. I used do this when I was younger with the telly weather forecasters. Anytime they predicted nice weather I knew we were in for more rain!

    • Perhaps they should just always predict rain. If you were right – great! If wrong – people are still happy it’s sunny!

  2. Good blog!

  3. 🙂

  4. the last report said we had a 50% chance of rain – kinda like saying we got no clue but nicer ! Excellent blog, very creative work too 🙂

    • 50% chance of rain? With odds like those even I could be the weatherman. 🙂

    • Isn’t the internet nifty? People can see and share things across the globe on a daily basis. Sometimes, it hits me how big a deal that is.
