                           _THE WEATHER AROUND US_

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we always knew how to dress when we
got up in the morning?  If there would be no more getting half
way to work, having the heavens open up and getting soaking wet
because we did not bring our umbrellas?  Well, with the sites
listed below, there are no more excuses.  These are links to as
many weather sites as I could handle.  You notice I did not say
"as many as I could find."  It is amazing what is out there, but
I made sure that the links included weather information from
around the world as well as in the United States.  I'm afraid I
went a little heavy on the hurricane links, but then I live in a
city where Hurricane Kate did a lot of damage.  From June to
November hurricanes are never far from my mind.  As I type this
column, there are two hurricanes, a tropical storm and a tropical
depression following each other off the coast of Africa.  The
first Hurricane, Edward, chose to disrupt the weather in the
Northeast.  The second Hurricane, Frances, decided to come ashore
in North Carolina.  We are still keeping a close watch on the
tropical storm.  My hope is that these sites will help us all
prepare for the worst while we are hoping for the best.
Happy surfing....
