Sunny with a Chance of Being Not Sunny

On cable TV they have a weather channel – 24 hours of weather. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window.
– Dan Spencer –

Sometimes I want a broader perspective than what I can see out my window. For example, yesterday we were blanketed in smoke. I didn’t want apocalyptic media reports about forest fires and climate change, so I opened up my favourite site for weather information: windy.com It showed where the fires were and which way the wind was blowing. (Today it is hazy too – but it is fog…)

There is little chance that meteorologists can solve the mysteries of weather until they gain an understanding of the mutual attraction of rain and weekends.

  1. Your post reminded me of the little ditty we learned in school: “Whether the weather be fine, or whether the weather be not, We’ll weather the weather, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not.”

  2. We had a drizzly damp day for the first time this summer which I thoroughly enjoyed. The reprieve from the sun had me wearing a hoidy and shorts! Lol
    That’s our Alberta weather- confusing! Lol

  3. We just had the strangest storm – they called for severe weather and tornadoes … we did have storms and torrential rain … not your father’s rainstorm. The rain stopped and started five times. I mean, it just stopped, like someone turned off a tap. I really like the weather quotes. Mark Twain is a favorite of mine for his quips and quotes.

    1. We had a storm like that earlier this month! It would bucket down then stop, then do it again. Sometimes if we are out driving during a storm, there can be a line on the road where it goes from raining to not raining.

      1. I’ve never seen that before … usually it is pitter patter and ramps up but this amazed me. I’ve never seen that as to either side of the road. I think we can kiss normal weather goodbye going forward. We had four tornadoes touch down – I was unscathed and feel very blessed for that.

        1. Good news! NOAA says there isn’t an increasing trend of frequency of stronger tornadoes but there is an increase in how many tornadoes in general can be reported because of increased population seeing them, and more Doppler radar coverage… plus more media hype! The number of U.S. landfalling Major Hurricanes has trended downward since the 1930’s too… weather never is normal, is it?!

          1. Weather is getting too wacky for me. We have weather spotters now … take a few classes, then are considered qualified to report on severe weather conditions. Remind me in Winter when I complain about the snow that I complained about the heat and wished it was cold again!

    1. Either I never heard, or have forgotten the Hippy Dippy Weatherman. Thanks for the heads up on that one!
