DJP 17 by gina sekelsky studio(Always harder to get a good photo on a dark and rainy morning.) As I'm writing my journal each day, it's tempting to fall back on a weather report.  My dad wrote down the temperature & weather conditions every day for years.  I love that he did that, and it may be where I get my drive, but I'm actively trying to keep weather as just part of the picture. A customer of mine spends every winter in Hawaii.  The biggest difference to her -- other than the temperature, of course? No one there talks about the weather (or at least, not the way we do in Minnesota).  How about where you live?

    My mom always talks about how hot it is, when it’s going to be hotter, and worries about storms/rain.When it gets below 50, she talks about how cold it is and how long that will last. Her mom was terrified about thunderstorms, but they watched a neighbor kid get struck by lightning in their backyard. My dh and I are planning on moving to Massachusetts, and she doesn’t understand that we like the cold. I may have been born in the South, but I hate hot weather. Dh and I also love snow. Our relatives ask how we’re going to handle the snow, like we’ve never seen snow. We lived in Detroit for almost 4 years and 6 in Chicago. We can even drive in Southern snow/ice.

    My years between cradle and college were spent in an American corporate town on the southern tip of the Dutch island of Aruba in the southern Caribbean Sea, twenty miles from Venezuela.

    In the local language, Papiamento, there was not any word for “weather” since it was the same every day and night, warm, windy, and arid with very little rain, a desert island, so close to the Equator that the sun sets about the same time in June as it did in January.

    College in Iowa was an enormous shock…weather became not just part of conversation, it became my enemy!
