It’s everyone’s travel nightmare.

I’m on several message boards dedicated to travel and see a lot of people who initiate threads with, “How is the weather in [for example] Orlando in December?” Or “What’s the weather like in [for example] New York City right now?” My first thought it always, “I hope they have a weather app or know how to search for the weather.” Well, maybe they don’t :-).
