I have written about this before, but it came to mind today with a complex weather scenario on the way. I know more about the upcoming weather than I can possibly explain!
It wasn’t always this way. Back in the ‘good old days’ my information was a little more spongy and changeable. Nowadays I have lots of specifics–times, places, temperatures. The resolution is higher and accuracy (though nowhere near perfect) better.
The problem is, if I tried to give an hour-by-hour timeline I’d run out of time. I’m not asking for more time, because even if I had it, no one could process it all the info. This scenario is so complex most people won’t be able to accurately describe the twists and turns after it’s over!
Recently I’ve been using the word “nasty” a lot to describe just this type of outlook. Maybe that’s the way to go? Maybe less is more?
