So Excite has a weather warning for the Seattle area. I just want to mention that it's bright, 70+ degrees, and simply beautiful out.
The warning: "A STRONG AND WET PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND" Um. Ok.
It gets better: "IT APPEARED THAT THE BEST CHANCE OF HEAVY RAIN WILL BE OVER THE OLYMPICS WHERE STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL HELP TO ENHANCE RAINFALL RATES OVER THE SOUTH AND WEST FACING SLOPES." Ok. The Olympics are west of Seattle and generally stop the really big storms. Sounds like this is one of those times.
Did this really justify a "severe weather alert"? That there is likely to be rain in Seattle?
