Weather People

I realized today that I am not a weather person. I know many people who are happy when the sun shines and sad when the rain falls. I couldn't care less if I tried. Rain or snow, sun or clouds, locusts or frogs, I will do whatever I plan on doing and will be happy about it. I believe this will be a good quality to have in Seattle.

I am definitely a "weather person". I call it inverse pathetic fallacy. For this reason, Naiad and I have decided that I am not allowed to go to school in Ithaca (NY, that is, not Greece). And apparently it is genetic, or it's just a coincidence that my dad is the same way.

Is there much frog-precipitation in Seattle?

Personally, I like the weather in Seattle. I think most people find that the rain is less annoying than they think it will be, and that the lack of intense heat and extreme cold is rather pleasant.

Hooray for rain and cold weather!

I am beginning to realize that I am a weather person. Not that rain and bad weather make me unhappy, but good weather markedly improves my happiness. Ahhhh, good weather!

I am a weather person. I am very happy when it rains, thus my sincere desire to go where you are going.

I remember living in the state of Washington. I pulled into a gas station one day. As he was pumping the gas, the attendant said to me, "What do you think? Do you think summer will fall on a weekend this year?"

That pretty well described it!

I'm a weather person. Especially when it starts to snow mid-April. Like today. I can personally testify that it was snowing from Beaver on up. I was driving in it.
