Let me just clarify something before I get too far into this. I don't have it out for weathermen/weatherwomen (wow "weatherwoman" almost sounds like a superhero name). I know their job can be difficult--why else does every news station have three of them doing the same job? Let's just call what I'm doing an "audit on reality." I just want to make sure I'm not being fed constantly inaccurate data from my local news sources. I think it's only fair. So every morning, you'll have the local NBC affiliate's forecast for the day as predicted in Sunday's 7-day outlook, WEATHER.COM's same forecast (although, technically, their forecast goes 10 days out) and lastly you'll have the actual weather.

I'm gonna get to the bottom of this once and for all.

In other news, an accused cop killer on the run was shot 68 times by Florida SWAT team members. 110 shots were fired. In grade school, they would have scored an "F." Pretty sad that so many rounds missed being that he was probably dead and motionless after the tenth round. Either way, I found it particularly disturbing that a SWAT team would act so rash. I mean, by no means am I siding with criminals, but this is not the behavior I would expect of those in charge of keeping the community safe--loading rounds into a human like its target practice. Get this, when asked by the local paper about the incident, the sheriff said, “That’s all the bullets we had, or we would have shot him more.” What an awesomely derranged world we live in.

And with that uplifting story, go have yourself a Monday.
