This seems typical when people decide something needs to be "improved". The old radar was quite good. I could see the rain and predict within 15 minutes when it would get to me almost every time. Then the government decided to "update" it and it didn't work as well so they decided to "update" it again. Now, it is pretty much useless. I can SEE that to is raining, sometimes POURING a few miles away and the radar shows nothing. I was lamenting a similar situation to the wife just yesterday. Years ago, when i wanted something I could type it into google and find it. Now, I type what I am looking for and I get all sorts of unrelated $hit coming up and it does't matter how detailed (or generic) I make my search, I get the same list of unrelated $**** and most often can't find what i want. I asked my wife to try to find something for me because i was having limited success and a bit later she started to laugh. Apparently, she was searching tools and home improvement and among the results she got was a box of tampons. While with a little imagination one could consider tampons to be a tool and perhaps a form of home improvement, I don;t think anyone LOOKING for tampons would be searching those titles. We see this all too often these days with pop,e whose job requires them to make changes to stay relevant lest their job disappear so we get solutions in search of a problem. It is evident everywhere from safety procedures to EPA regulations to weather radar and Inet searches. Pendulums always reach a zenith then swing back the other way.Yes the radar is a joke really in this country. Where I live is between 2 radar circles where they overlap. It is just projected I believe because it is off by 40 miles sometimes. You got to ask yourself in this day and age of sub 2" accuracy of auto steer we pay for, the radar the government supplies us for weather is beyond archaic for accuracy. You can only use the data collected when it is apparently close and then look at the sky and estimate where that cloud actually is and perform your own predictions. I was custom spraying fungicide at 3 am and there was lightening and a big system 30-40 miles straight north of me. On the radar there was apparently nothing there. The lightening to the west of me 80 miles or so to the west of me was showing up as a storm on radar. Makes me think this country could have skud missiles entering from the north undetected. Glad the Canada goose doesnt rely on Canadian radar because the buggers would be in a different location every year.
