I've been watching the weather up there trying to figure
out what type of clothes to bring. Do you New Yorkers,
have any suggestions?
I have a handy program that loads automatically whenever I am online.
you can download it at http://www.weatherbug.com
Some nice features include weather alerts for your zip code. You are alerted to any weather changes via a "chirping" sound from the blinking icon on your toolbar. You can also get forecasts from various zip codes by making the appropriate changes in the program. The forecasts offers 7 days of probable weather conditions.
I have the program at school and the kids recognize the sound for the alert. You can imagine their anticipation for a snowday !
