Didn’t show, though your link shows it was timestamped more than an hour earlier. But they did mention thundershowers in the city forecast, updated at 7 am, which I linked.

And then, there was “O-boom-a”

However, I don’t think you are being a “Downer” by sharing your frustration here, especially if 300 bucks isn’t something you can generally toss around with ease.

I know we get all kinds of weather, but all at once? ;-)

Looks like it won’t last long though.
