06 Oct In the news
As I type this, New Orleans is a potential target of Hurricane Nate, Enough with the 2017 hurricanes, already! But if you are tracking a hurricane or just wondering when it will rain next, here are two weather apps that I have been using a lot lately and that I can recommend. First, I like Hurricane HD, a great app that focuses just on tracking hurricanes. Second, for a long time I put off trying CARROT Weather because it has a reputation for being snarky, which seemed like just a gimmick to me. But I've been using the app for a few weeks now, and it has quickly become my favorite weather app. And now, the news of note from the past week:
