"How 'bout that weather?
Hot enough for ya?
Will this winter never end?
I'm so tired of rain.
It's so dry - our grass is just burning up."
Humans are fickle. Perhaps because we cannot control the weather, we feel a need to complain about it. We compare our weather to that of other places. We wish for weather we have experienced at different times. We plan important events outside, and then worry and get frustrated if conditions are less than ideal. We even sometimes talk about the weather as an icebreaker during an interaction, or just to have something to say.
I am attending a swim meet this week in Portland, OR. Yesterday morning was chilly enough to feel cold - but by afternoon temperatures were soaring into the high 90's, and the sun beat down from a cloudless sky. Today, instead of complaining about the heat, I am going to study the pictures on my phone, which I took this winter.
