I'd love it if for one week they would bring out all the old weather stuff from the 60s and 70s. Some used a chalk board. My favorite was the magnetic board with pieces on the board to show rain, snow, sun, or a weather front. If he tapped on the board then some pieces would fall. We also didn't have dopplar radar. We had a black and white satellite image that showed clouds. What was in those clouds was a mystery. Now they can show you a rain cloud and tell you what street it's on. I just wish they'd stop fooling themselves by trying to make predictions more than 3 days in advance. Any more than 3 day prediction and they're just guessing.

Around here they hardly ever have it right the second day! But then, they frequently change it every six hours.
