This Forecast Updated Tuesday, August 21st 12:00PM – 2012


I am high in the Sierras camping and the internet card I had counted on to update things has all the oomph of an Al Gore prototype, dial up modem. Just getting this far was a monumental task so I am just going to tap out until Sunday night. Sorry guys, technology is not working at the speed of light right now.

I did take a look at the outlook and I’m sad to report that my forecast is still on the money. Nothing of note heading our way in the forseeable future… sorry!
