Everyone wants to know the weather. From the summer of 1996 until
04 Jun 2018, I served up images that had originally come from
Purdue's Weather Processor. When

I like playing with words: exploring meanings and usages, and
generally making people think about how language works. I'm

formulations. Noah Webster was an effective reformer, but I
don't think his reforms were all for the better. For
example, while I don't often see the need to reverse the "e"
and the "r" in words like "center" ('centre'), I do prefer to
use 's' in "/iz/" endings ("recognise"/ "recognize"), and
I believe that 'honour' would be less noble without its 'u'.
As Andrew Jackson said, "'Tis a poor mind that can think of
only one way to spell a word."
