You don't need Verizon for time and weather
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
Heartbroken over Verizon’s decision to discontinue their dial-in time and weather services June 1?
Cheer up, Bunky. You can get a “free” (with a little advertising) weather forecast – and the time (to within a minute) - from BGE and Fox45 on their joint time and weather line. Just call 410 662-9225.
For the most precise time service available, you can also dial up the U.S. Naval Observatory’s “master clock,” at 202 762-1401.
But it’s a 24-hour ticker, so 3:17 p.m. is “15 hours, 17 minutes…”
