Alt. Hed: Overheard in Tim’s Office This Morning
So Tim and I were catching up during our semi-regulary coffee klatch this morning, talking about news events of the day, how late we watched the All-Star Game last night, our feelings — you know, the usual. I brought up a possible blog item, possible story, possible nothing: One of the new whizzbang apps for the iPhone is WeatherBug, a detailed weather report and forecast. Odd, I thought, that the local radars and measuring devices and such were based at Robinson Middle School in Plano. Interesting? Worth blogging? Need more reporting? These are the things we were discussing when Sarah walked in to join the discussion. We pick up the scene there:
Sarah: “What are you guys talking about? Work stuff?”
Me: “Actually, yeah. I was telling Tim about the new WeatherBug thingy for the iPhone. Don’t you think it’s weird that all the weather data — temperature, barometer, all of that — is based in Robinson Middle School in Plano?”
Sarah: (pause) “I think that’s just because we’re in Dallas.”
I then apologized for not making it clear that I wasn’t talking about all weather, everywhere. It was funny at the time, but then, the coffee had yet to take its effect.
