Weather beat: Skilling exiles self for incorrect Bears game forecast – TheHeckler.com

There’s a lot of inherent risk to weather forecasting, as this article points out (WARNING: Satire).

This is Pete: Antique Weather Clock

Here’s an intriguing idea: mocking up an old-style clock and hooking it up to your computer to display the current weather conditions. I especially like the tornado warning icon. There is also a skull-and-crossbones icon, which might at first represent really bad weather or nuclear war, but which turns out to be “dead clock”.
