I never used to pay much attention to the news and was especially bored with tracking the weather. I never had any idea if it was going to snow or rain until I talked to someone who had watched the weather. Now, I think it is important to stay up-to-date and plan accordingly. I can remember when a couple of friends and I decided to visit the Kings Island theme park, which is about an hour away. It was Halloween time and we were excited about the Haunted Houses and being able to ride rides after-dark. Little did we know that we pretty much wasted a whole trip and the cost of admission because it ended up raining and the park closed early.
Anytime my family and friends decide to do something, we check in with AccuWeather. A fun outing can turn into a disaster if the weather decides to throw humanity a curve ball. I'm a huge fan of the weekly forecasts because it allows me to decide which day would be the best for certain tasks. This is especially important when you live in an area like I do. One day there will be snow and the next it feels like a heat wave.
