"If you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes and it'll change"--you'll hear statement just about anywhere you go. George, Chris, and I would probably say "don't shoot the messenger!!" Anyways, if you don't like the weather, today's web site gives you a chance to do something about it--sort of. orderweather.com allows you to order whatever kind of weather you want for any day of the year--even snow on the 4th of July.
Start off by entering your zip code, then fill out your name, e-mail address, and the zip code you're ordering the weather for, and then the date. Next you'll choose the temperature, sky conditions, and weather conditions before placing your order. You're then sent an e-mail with a link to a certificate for the weather you ordered. Their disclaimers--they offer free shipping in case your order is late, and of course, it's just entertainment because they too, can't really do anything about the weather.
