I know I know..... who really wants to talk about the weather....right? Except we do...... all the time. I counted all the weather related status updates on my FB news feed last week........42.......... and most of it is boring weather (except for you Hyacinte, your prairie weather is insane).
In South Africa (back in the day) phone calls cost money, even local ones. Here in Canada local calling is free. My Grandpa Richardson lived across the country from us and he detested wasting money on idle chit chat and if you ever asked about the weather he would say "hang up" and then he would do just that. Then if I wanted to chat more I would have to call back on my dime!
But here in the north the weather is much more of a topic in everyday conversation. But then the weather does also vary so much with each distinct season. In fact, it is this current lack of distinction between an abnormally wet Spring and a much anticipated sunny Summer that has some of us a bit cranky, if not downright depressed!
"They" tell me it is going to be sunny AND warm this weekend ........ and I can't wait... and I am sure it will move many to comment on their FB status about how lovely it is......... and then we will be back to the Canucks updates........ which is a great diversion from the weather.
