Applied Weather Report

As much as we talk about the weather, most people, including me, don't really understand it: cold front, warm front, jet stream, high pressure, low pressure, what? All most of us care about is should I bring a sweater, an umbrella, or both tomorrow?

We live in a little development tucked away on a hill bordered by some woods, but the interstate is less than half a mile away, and there are train tracks not too much further beyond that. I know, because I know, but I also know, because when there is a low pressure system in place, I can hear the hum of traffic and the rumble of the trains, but high pressure keeps those sound waves where they are.

Neat, right?
