Do I need a jacket? The next best thing to looking out the window.
posted by Arch Stanton (26 comments total)

Yes. Why? Because: It's cold.

Beheh. My all purpose US zip code, for when I must pretend I don't live in Canadia is near Chicago. If I were there, I'd need a jacket because 'It's frickin' freezing'.

I usually wear one because it's slimming. But hey, this thing says it's misty and cold at Dover Delaware, so there's another reason!

Do I need a condom?

Yes. Why? Because: She's a slut.

I'd love to have a firefox plugin keeping me updated... imagine just looking down at the corner of the screen and seeing "YES. Because it's cold. And it's windy."

Course i wear one anyway cause its got all my junk in it. Pez dispenser, gum, matches, and so on.

Weathe- errm, ForecastFox has made windows obsolete for me.

"Hey look, it's raining outside!" *pauses, listens, nods*

am i the only one who finds this extremely useful?

I think it must get its data from Automated Weather Stations, which replaced humans in Australia about a month ago. No more lighthouse rainfall collecting for you, Eric. That is why there are some gaps. and BlackLeotardFront, look at the free version of this. I seem to recall that there were animated ones of these around years ago.

/answers own query, feels important

These jacket people are wusses. It's 54 degrees Fahrenheit and it tells me I need a jacket. Pshaw.

It told me I needed to wear a jacket when I popped in 90210 as a zip code cause it's "not very warm out". It's 57 °F / 14 °C there. I beg to differ on the jacket issue!

I might, however, recommend a light sweater.

but..... I do not understand what it says for Miami (internl airport).... I need to know!

Why? Because you live in San Francisco, the land with one season year-round.

It's 54 degrees Fahrenheit and it tells me I need a jacket.

At work today, someone caught a shoplifter and mentioned that they weren't wearing a jacket to hide more things in. I was shocked, I had been outside less than 10 minutes before and it was 41 degrees out. My coworker described 41 as nice out, and I questioned whether a winter of 0-20 has made us celebrate every degree above freezing. Then again, when I was in High School, guys would wear shorts in January.

Hell. I live in Minnesota, and 41 is nice out. Assuming there's no wind, that is. Around those temperatures, windchill is everything.

Reminds me of fuzzy clock. Just the information you need, and nothing more.
posted by BuddhaInABucket at 10:22 PM on March 20, 2005

This is extremely useful.

However, it's probably easier and faster to call up my mom.

She may be sleeping, in another state, in a different time zone and have absolutely no idea what the weather is like where i am, but she can, without fail, tell me exactly when i need a jacket, and what kind of jacket i will need.
And she will Always be right.
I learned when i was young that resistance is absolutely futile, if mom says you need a jacket, then you will absolutely freeze your ass off if you choose not to bring one.

chatterbox, we may be long-lost relatives. By chance did your mother ever say "Put a jersey on - I feel cold?"

(Jersey = sweater for you foreigners).

look at the free version of this.

The prob w/ WeatherBug is it puts tons of spyware on your system and is a bitch to get rid of, it doesn't come w/ an uniinstall feature.

Yep, tried that berek, it's crapola. Shoulda tried it first. And no Australia. Back to the BOM for me.
posted by bdave at 3:58 AM on March 21, 2005

Cute but useless for me.. I like making up my own mind as to whether or not I need a jacket, based on the temperature. I'll stick to Environment Canada's Weather Office.

It is working for me, and it looks like it works for Toronto.
posted by sleslie at 4:37 AM on March 21, 2005

Also downtown Toronto.

Woo, new home page.

Also, sleslie, that first link is slightly inaccurate. Should be:

YWG: Yes. Because it's frickin' WINNIPEG.
posted by DrJohnEvans at 10:59 AM on March 21, 2005

I think they need to take into account the fact that someone in "Canada will be perfectly happy going jacketless in 8-10 degree weather while someone in the Southern US would want to bundle up.
