Weather Forecast . . .
Sunday, April 11, 2021
We've noticed that the weather forecast here tends to be on the pessimistic side! With the ACTUAL weather quite often sunnier than the prediction.
At one point last week we were looking at seven solid days of rain and some snow . . . including for today. But at the moment, anyhow, clear blue skies and relatively benign temperature too: above freezing and not much wind.
Our vendor friends have told us, snow can happen here well into May. There's still a small patch of snow in the garden. And there's still snow forecast for Wednesday and for Friday. But: I'm not going to shake the snow globe, put myself into blizzard conditions in advance! Down coats, sheepskin snow boots, cashmere sweaters and warm gloves: there's no such thing as "bad" weather when you have acquired the clothes to cope with it. Raincoats, rain boots, umbrellas: perfect for singing in the rain with the ducks and robins! And when it's hot: sun hats, sun screen, rash guards and bug spray too. No bugs, no birds!!
And yes, I can't help but think of my own fearful internal weather predictor -- "what if x happens" or "what if y happens" . . . well, ya know, over the years I've amassed the equipment to cope with that too!
Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not!
