    Hi Allan, hate to be a pain but the name of the day of the week with the date might be nice in case I don’t get to iPad and miss a day. I never know the date but always the week day. Thanks for them report. May be a slow day for me tomorrow if wind and rain begin before 2PM.

      That is a great suggestion about putting the date on my forecasts Peter, I will start with this morning’s blog. Looks like the heaviest rain will be after 2 p.m. so it may not be too slow unless your patients don’t like the strong winds.
