Damn you Google! Stop fiddling. And make it rain.

Google has disappeared the bestest little – and most convenient – weather widget ever, the one I’ve depended on for a few years. Now there’s only a link to a less informative source.  That’s a very Microsofty thing to do – and not very customer friendly.

See, I’m very interested in the weather today and the teevee won’t do it (I continually miss the eight-minute mark on The Weather Channel).  Down here, we’re in our 28th month of drought (barefoot caution: the grass will cut your feet), and today holds the possibility of up to an inch of rain.  (The year-to-date normal should be 10.9 inches. We’ve had 3.4. Pretty much in keeping with the last few years.)

I just grabbed this from somewhere – it’s the current Doppler. See that little segment between the two big fronts? That’s me.

Rain rain don’t go away. (and damn teh google!)

  1. Suggest NOAA.gov.
    Superb service paid for with our tax dollars.
    (Don’t know how much it’s costing us; but that no longer seems to matter.)
    Just punch in a zip code in the upper left spot and get choice of text, radar or doppler maps, or hourly predictions of your choice from about a dozen variables. Maps are expandable to beautiful national scale moving images.

  3. While I am not disappointed that we were spared the forecast tornadoes, I really am sorry about the major downpour that didn’t happen. According to my rain gauage, we got an inch and a half in two days – nice but not enuff.

  5. That’s funny, we FINALLY got some sun over here in the Northwest. But yeah, I heart the National Weather Service page. It’s got the most accurate forecasts, in my experience.
