Background: We, in New York City, have been basking in the summer sun the past few days. Of course, rain threatened each afternoon. And when a few drops started on Sunday, I overheard the following exchange, outside a gym, under an awning:
Man 1: No way this is 20 percent.
Man 2: Damn right, this is more like 50 percent, not 20 percent.
Man 1: Could be 40 percent but 20 percent is just stupid.
Bless the amateur weathermen.
