Good to go?

We haven’t quite adapted to this Tennessee weather yet.

In Florida the weather guessers forecast a 50-percent chance of rain roughly 300 days a year.  That means your BBQ has a fifty-fifty chance of getting rained on.  So we cook out 300 days a year and only occasionally get rained on.

Conversely, up here on the mountain, it seems that a 20-percent chance of rain means that 20 percent of the rain in the area will definitely fall on you.

I thought it was a chance of rain, like gambling, not a percentage of total rainfall. I thought wrong. The last time it was 50 percent it was a real frog-strangler.

I’m not looking forward to 100-percent chance of snow.
