  • 05:39:16: Dear Weather Service: what is the diff between "partly sunny" and "partly cloudy?"
  • 16:03:49: Just saw fantastic Carmen on PBS Great Performances. But turned on after it started & never got names. Still...loves it.
  • 16:05:38: Only 3 altos both services. Better than 2. But Randall Thompson "Alleluia" is hard to do with 3 altos and 6 or 7 sops (second service.)
  • 16:56:12: The thing about having more pots than storage is that you have to use the pots so one or two are always on the stove/in the oven.
  • 17:15:03: Link to Carmen description & preview: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/episodes/gp-at-the-met-carmen/preview-the-opera/978/

Dear Weather Service: what is the diff between "partly sunny" and "partly cloudy?"

"Partly sunny" = more clouds than sun
"Partly cloudy" = more sun than clouds

I believe they also used (or used to use) "mostly"

ps. Shouldn't that question mark be *outside* the quotation marks?
Pedantically yours...

(sticking tongue out at punctuation correct in TWITTER, for Pete's sake!)

But the article someone sent me, with quotes from meteorologist, said it was the opposite: partly sunny was sun>clouds, etc. I had thought it was the way you said, but still kinda silly for us. I've seen days when it was part sun/part cloud all day, but the ratios changed every 15-20 minutes.

Mostly makes sense if it is actually mostly cloudy, or mostly sunny.

Dear Elizabeth,

We like to cater to both the optimists and the pessimists, by a form of term rotation. The realists have their days too, when we announce, "It will basically be overcast all bloody day, but you'll still get stuff done."

Sincerely yours,
The Weather Service.

Thank you, dear Weather Service.

Although the realists down here usually get "It will basically be hotter than bearable and dryer than your plants can stand for the next three to four months so you'd better have money laid aside for your electric bill 'cause it ain't gonna be pretty."
