As a kid, I was fascinated by the weather & read about fronts & air pressure & the rest. I got my mother to buy me a cheap barometer. Now, with a couple of mouse clicks, I have better information about the weather than meteorologists had only a couple of decades ago. It has been hot here today, with thunderstorms predicted. Amazingly, I have been able to watch on my computer screen as a line of storms gathered strength west of Lake Ontario this morning & then moved steadily east. My window is open & I can just now hear the first rumbles of thunder.
