I Want to Be a Weatherman

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young

Yesterday morning, the weather stated it would be cool -- about 65 degrees -- and overcast today with showers off and on. It also stated that the week would be fairly cool as well. Perfect weather for all the planting and transplanting I wanted to do.

So yesterday, I went to town. I moved a ton of plants. I put in all my annuals. I got baby lettuce plants from my SIL who was thinning hers and planted those. Some things looked a little wilty, some are delicate things that don't like to move, but it was okay because they'd have a nice, cool, wet day to settle in.

Late last night I checked the weather again, because we hadn't gotten the afternoon showers they'd predicted. And, lo and behold, they said things had changed. Today would be HOT (88 degrees) and partly cloudy with no showers expected.


THEN, this morning I checked the weather.

They're saying cloudy and 82 with no rain, but when I look at the radar -- THIS is what I see.

Now, I'm no weatherman, but I'm thinking that huge pile of yellow, orange and green heading toward New Hampshire means, yanno... RAIN.

I want their job. The one where you can be wrong more than half the time and still not be fired.


You Are Serious

You are so wise it's intoxicating. People are blown away by the things you say.

In life, you are happy to take the sweet with the sour. You wouldn't want to feel too much of one emotion.

You are likely very literary and philosophical. You savor life, and you appreciate others who do as well.

You are very cosmopolitan and urban. It drives you crazy when people have a limited or provincial perspective.

Wait.. I AM so wise it's intoxicating. How did they know???

LOL. That is so true!

Hope you're not in for a deluge. Good luck!

It's triple digits again for us.

Our 90 degree + weather turned out to be in the low 80's and overcast all day. Actually quite nice. Now today we are expecting clouds and rain. Who knows really. It's a wait and see day.

Are your plants Okay?

You Are Intense
You're so energetic and passionate it's intoxicating. You are fired up!
You're the type of person that has many things going on at once. And you refuse to pick just one.

You are always up for an adventure, and you are likely to turn a boring day into something amazing.
You crave new and mind blowing experiences. If you feel nervous, you're doing something right.

re: weatherman - you are so right. I want their job.

You Are Laid Back

You're so relaxed it's intoxicating. People feel like they can really be themselves around you.

You believe "easy come, easy go" - and you are always ready to roll with the punches.

You don't get involved in drama, and you usually have a clear head.

You are content to sit back and watch. You get a lot of joy from simply allowing things to unfold.
This is me. pps..I have no idea what drink this is, but it looked pretty.

So true!!

No, that yellow is daffodils. Aren't they pretty?

It's been raining all morning. Don't mind. Our garden needs a drink too.

Still haven't witnessed any thunderstorms-except for a few rumblings on Thursday. *sigh*

Tori Lennox said...

Yeah, weathermen have it made! And you can make incredibly obvious statements like "rain is wet". ROFL!

Our weathermen are usually more wrong in the Winter. It's pretty easy to do the weather here in the summer-Humid and Hot. *G* But, yeah, how is it they are wrong so much of the time and yet still have jobs? Do they predict the weather by looking into crystal balls? *G*

According to the Quiz I am Serious, too. Don't know how accurate this one is.

I hope you're having a peaceful day!
