This summer, many adults have been anxiously watching radar images too. Not for Santa, but for rain — or anything that might look like it would produce rain. One of the marvels of modern technology is the ability to track storms on your smartphone. (Well, at least an up-to-date smartphone. While I have graduated from the flip-top phone, my smartphone isn’t “smart” enough to run the radar images. My wife’s phone is, however, and together we peer into the screen — zooming in, zooming out, searching for any weather pattern heading our way.)
