Well, our weather bureau, probably the only one between Salt Lake City and
Portland, has a lot of meteorologists, they're about 200 yards from me, and
they can't forecast weather until it's upon them. The fly-by-nighters work
for the television stations. Grump. Once in a while, they get it right, but
