Today's Weather: Tankboyish

If Sunday's weather was Anne Hathaway - beauty, grace, absolute perfection - then today's weather is Tankboy: a little bit out of place and if you feed it enough Sparks, it goes into overload and threatens to overwhelm you. The partly-to-mostly cloudy skies are just Tankboy's way of keeping you guessing and these below normal temps, with highs in the low 70s, are meant to keep you completely off balanced. Shouldn't it be sunny and hot this time of year? Not when Tankboy's around. He has the power of evil. Like Zuul. There's only a slight chance of showers, as Tankboy like to display his benevolence, but tonight that benevolence wears off as light showers are likely. Hey, you'd do the same if you were 53 years old.
