Rain, Rain.

It’s hard to believe that only a week ago we were having a spectacular Indian summer.  Now fall has arrived with a vengeance.

This is a good day to spend in the clubhouse working on the KYC web page–and incentive to complete the KYC weather page.  For those of you who are following development of this site, we just can’t fit all of the weather info and links on the front page, so we’ll put up a few of the most popular ones, and move everything else to a separate weather page.

There is no shortage of weather information out there, and it varies from one service to another.  There’s even a website out there that compares the accuracy of the different forecasting services.  Check out the link Forecast Advisor for current information:

To be honest, I have not researched how this website does their analysis or arrives at these numbers, but it does illustrate that it doesn’t hurt to check more than one source if your headed out boating.
