I was just thinking back to a weird letter I got years ago.
It had to be years ago. I don’t get traditional mail at work anymore. Email? Plenty.
The letter was from an organization that promoted tourism on Cape Cod. It probably wasn’t the Chamber of Commerce, but something similar.
They noticed a full rain free week in New England is a rarity. They thought that was bad for business. You know, someone sees rain in the forecast and stays home.
It’s tough for resorts that first grew mainly because they were close to cities. Nowadays with flying, close isn’t as important.
The Cape folks wanted me (and I assume the other stations) to drop the extended forecast! Get rid of that pesky rain! It’s always easier to shoot the messenger.
