Of course this is New England, and for those of you traveling and unfamiliar with our weather... it is forreeevverrrr changing. There is a saying, "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait an hour." For example, this past Tuesday... It was thunderstorms in the morning and it said it was supposed to be scattered thundershowers all day hitting 60-70% chance at times. By noonish, not only did blue skies come out, but the chance of rain dropped to 20% for the rest of the day. I had a patio shift at my second job that night and had to go in. I get there and twenty minutes later there is a "severe storm watch" and the radar showed the storm to be about 40 minutes out. We close up shop- move guests inside, take down umbrellas.... and guess what? It never even rained. That's our weather for ya.
