"Hi, my name is Karen and I have a slight weather.com addiction. It's been 30 seconds since I last checked the weather."
I check the weather.com app multiple times a day on my phone, especially before the following important events:
- outdoor parties like weddings or graduations
- golf outings
- recess duty week
- the days we have tickets to our local AAA professional baseball games
- road trips
- possible snow days
But I get even more obsessive about checking the app starting 10 days before vacation, especially a beach vacation. In the last 10 days, I have clicked on the Hilton Head forecast at least a million times (okay, maybe not a million; I'm teaching hyperbole right now, so that might be a slight exaggeration). And of those million times, the forecast has changed multiple times.
But a girl has to pack eventually, so I finally had to make some clothing decisions based on the latest forecast 30 seconds ago. While I know I'm incredibly overpacked, I am ready for almost any weather condition, which appears to be a good plan.
And by the way, all the books I need to read made the suitcase as well!
