Been watching the impending of weather by a phone app.

The app actually shows the rain cloud in near instantiate form.

According to their 'prediction' on Wednesday, should have had 1/4 inch of ran and thunderstorms Thursday. Day was as dry as it could be.

Today it was as sunny as hell!

We all should go back to the old way of telling the weather - Look outside the window, that's the weather for today.
