I look at a lot of radar. I know where our lake lies and typically how storms move through our area. I always check the radar an hour or so before any scheduled practice.
At 4:52am...yes AM...this is what the radar looked like. That little yellow blob just to the east of KC normally would move east/north east...right over our lake. Most storms would move at a speed that would indicate very rainy conditions at our 6am practice time.
Stupid storm falling apart. No rain. No storms. Just me...smelling the already brewed coffee and remembering the days when I could just fall right back to sleep.
So give the weather folks a break. Sometimes storms do what they are supposed to and sometimes they don't.
It's all a crap shoot.
