I am looking forward to what 2006 brings, even though I know right now that it will personally be nowhere near as exciting as 2005, which will likely be one of the most unique years that I experience in my lifetime. Two events happened in 2005 to me that will never happen again for as long as I live: I graduated from high school on May 28, 2005 and then began college on August 19, 2005. So, all in all, I guess you could say that 2005 was a good and happy year for me. Hopefully 2006 will be too!
By the way, I’ve been a big fan of the Weather Underground (www.wunderground.com) ever since I discovered the website, oh, back in 1998 I guess. Out of all the weather-related websites out there right now, The Weather Underground is by far the best organized and offers the greatest amount of different features. There are some things on wunderground.com, like the full assortment of National Weather Service radar types, that you have to pay big money to view on other weather websites. Besides that, there are even other features, like the forecast model maps and astronomy charts, that are simply not available at places like weather.com. Although The Weather Underground is completely free, the free website is plagued with all sorts of ads. So that’s why I recommend buying the year-long subscription to the website that, amazingly, only costs $5 – a penny a day.
And that brings me to my purpose in promoting wunderground.com. As a subscriber to the website, I’ve received the opportunity to give a full year gift membership to anybody I want. I have yet to find anybody who could use a gift subscription, so, rather than letting it go to waste, I thought I would offer it up on here. If you’re interested, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll get you the directions for redeeming the membership.
