The Internet can be a great source of information. In my opinion, one of the best things about the Internet is that it offers weather forecasts. In fact, because of accurate forecasts you can completely get rid of your traditional thermometer to measure the temperature. You will simply no longer need it. What you can use instead is a program that displays the current temperature in your city. The data will come from a distance of a few miles so it should be quite accurate. Additionally, there are many sites on the Internet which predict the weather for the next few days, and you can check them from time to time too. With such software you can additionally check the force of wind on the particular day, and get other useful information. It might be a good idea to check the forecast each time you plan a trip with your family or friends. I think that weather forecasts can be very useful, and what I like the most about it is that you can have access to them just with a click of a button.
Anyway, it is hard for me to imagine life without any access to the Internet, and I realize that even 10 years ago, the Internet was not as popular as it is today. Some people did not even know that such thing as the Internet existed.
