I blame Mitch

At work we have a weather board that hangs outside of the office. I've claimed it as my job this year because it involves pretty coloured markers and drawing happy sunshines. The boss's daughter's boyfriend works at Environment Canada, so we are forbidden to use anything but that site to acquire our weather information.

This is what I found for Friday's weather:

Okay....I get that red means high and blue means low. That's just common sense. But wait...I see a sun, a rain cloud and a storm cloud. May I ask...there is a sixty percent chance of what, exactly? Sun? Cloud? Maybe some drizzle? What about some lightening? Oh wait! I've got it now! It means that there is a sixty percent chance that they have no idea what the heck they are doing. Thanks, Environment Canada!
