Forecast.io is One of the Best Weather App to Date

Always on the lookout for cool applications, Forecast.io was recommended to me by a coworker. It’s one of the first HTML5 web applications I’ve used that acts like an installed application.

To access the application all you need to do is point your internet browser to http://forecast.io and follow the on-screen instructions (if any). In the case of the iPhone you create a link on your home screen and access that app from there going forward.

Visually the application is clean and gives a glimpse of what the new iOS7 will look like when it’s released later this year.

From a functionality standpoint it covers all the basics and has a few little twists that I’ve already found useful (like the small chart that shows the timing and intensity of rain in the next hour).  It’s worth checking out of you want something different from what you’re currently using.

Broad Ripple Farmers Market

One sure sign of summer is the sight of the various Farmers Markets around town.  I’m fortunate to be in close proximity to several during the week and check them out as often as I can.  Last Saturday was no exception.

After getting rained out at an Indian’s game the night before I found a break in the clouds long enough to make it down to the Broad Ripple Farmers Market.  This one is always well attended and has a great mix of vendors selling everything from bread to veggies to Hickory Syrup (good stuff).

Picked up some veggies for a Farro Salad I was making for a cookout later that evening & even bought some breakfast.  All in all it’s worth the trip to the Village.  If you can’t find what you want there’s a produce stand on Allisonville and another farmers market on Binford Ave.2013-06-29 09.56.23

Batter Up!

Took the boy to an Indian’s game last Friday night.  I was hoping the bad weather would miss us and then this happened in the bottom of the 6th…2013-06-28 20.52.35Then the sky opened up and let loose a pretty big downpour.  We were just far enough up in the lower level box seats to have some cover.  We waited around for an hour & called a night.  Hoping to go back for another Friday night game and see the post-game fireworks!

Strange Sight Downtown

Looking out the break room window today before lunch and there were hundreds if people getting ready to do Yoga on the south side of Monument Circle.

Turns out it was the “Monumental Yoga on the Circle” event by The Athenaeum Foundation.

This Might Just Work!

I spend a lot of time in downtown Indianapolis and seeing people walking down the street staring into a smartphone is a very common site.

I’ve witnessed people walk into other pedestrians, step into traffic, and even the occasional parking meter out of nowhere collision.

I think this might be the solution for unemployment and rising medical costs due to stupidity.

I give you the Seeing Eye Person!
