checking the weather like a bride that is 10 days out from her wedding
Phew… long title but don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about. When a big event is around the corner, it is hard not to constantly check the weather. In my case, it is not an approaching wedding. Instead, we are just trying to take a short break and head out of town for a bit. Over just a few days, the forecast has gone from it’s totally going to rain on you to just a slight chance of rain as of the last time I checked. Between Weather.com (10-day forecasts available) and AccuWeather.com (15-day forecasts available), I’m feeling a bit stressed out. I think I need to hold off on checking the weather for a while and just set my mind to the fact that we are leaving no matter what.
I will mention that Weather.com has some interesting features, such as a wedding planner section as well as a way to check the fall foilage across the country. In case your wedding is still months away, you can always head on over to the Farmer’s Almanac as well. But beware of checking too often and stressing yourself out, for as the Farmer’s Almanac so thoughtfully reminds it visitors, “It is obvious that neither we nor anyone else has as yet gained sufficient insight into the mysteries of the universe to predict weather long-range with anything resembling total accuracy.” Hmm… I think that just said it all.
Just in case you are curious as to why I am currently obsessed with checking the weather, here is a glimpse of what we plan to be doing with our few days off. No computers. No internet connection. No television. No news. And, brace yourself… all cellphones turned off. (Notice to Glenwood: this is company policy as of today, please take note.)
Do we have a backup plan? Well, the parents don’t live too far away from where we will be staying… so maybe I should give them a call.
