Notable (I think) Award and I was Busted

So my post yesterday where I teased that the weather predictors on TV are not always completely accurate – got me busted.  I was hoping she wouldn’t see it, but one of my good friends from college saw the post and busted me on it.  You see, she’s in the weather biz.  I won’t tell you who she works for, but trust me, she’s legit.  And so she had to stand up for her cohorts:

“Some of my broadcast brethren are more accurate than others. For the most accurate forecast info the US National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas is your go-to: www.weather.gov/fortworth.
PS. There are lots of behavioral studies to prove that we as a whole are more accurate than you realize, sometimes “accuracy” is subjective.”

Haha, so in the future I will def be checking that link when I want the forecast!

Other than that, WordPress gave me the following badge today that says my blog has gotten 1337 “likes”.

That's a very important number...er, I guess.

That’s a very important number…er, I guess.

I have no idea why that random number is a milestone, but I’ll go with it.  I can’t wait until my next random award!!!

Anyway, the weather today was pretty good, so I got in a nice little run (no, I didn’t check the forecast first and so I was horribly mis-dressed).  I hope we are finally going to stay in spring!

How bout you?  Any idea why those digits are significant?  Have you ever gotten any random awards?  Ever been busted by a friend?

  1. HA — Zach’s literal favorite website: Weather.gov. Lame-o.

  2. That’s funny, you made me look at my “wordpress awards” and a while back I recieved the 1337 award too…must be their thing!
    I haven’t been busted by a friend yet but it’s only a matter of time 😉

  3. Congrats on your 1337 Award!! 🙂

  4. Haha, I love it!! What a random number but seriously, that is a lot of likes!!

  5. I googled it when I got that, some sort of computer joke amongst those smarter than us I suppose. It at least had me searching. Congrats on your award! I actually find that noaa.gov tends to work best for me. Not so much so when the government was shut down though.

    • Ahhh, thanks for doing the legwork on that research.
      I’ll have to check out that site (when the government is working)

  6. Haha what a random number! Congratulations anyways that’s a lot of likes!

  7. Congrats on lucky number 1337!

  8. I can’t believe I know the answer to this, but 1337 is “leet”. Which means “elite”. It’s basically computer speak and now I feel like the biggest dork ever.

    Congrats on your random award! Well deserved!!

  9. Congratulations! You really must get a sash and sceptre now.

  10. No awards for me and nowhere near that many likes on my blog but maybe one day. Something to work towards.

    Way to go!

    Funny you got busted.

  11. Hahaha such a random number to celebrate! I got one today too for 1000, but that’s normal to me because it’s a nice even number…

  12. I must commend you in admitting to it!! And weather… Oy… The saying here in Colorado is that if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes! Too true. I don’t envy our meteorologists.

    • Haha, yeah, I was just pointing it out because they were so SURE that we were going to get this crazy weather, but it never happened. Funny!
