So, I guess that makes a weather watcher like me pretty boring too.
I don't necessarily like to discuss the weather constantly - although I have been heard to make a number of planny plans for when the 'Summer weather' arrives and we haven't actually reached Spring yet.
I don't even particularly understand a lot of the weather conditions and terminology.
I just LOVE to check the weather.
Maybe it's another one of those 'control' things I've got going on.
No rogue storm is going to catch me - or my washing - unawares!
Name a day this week and I can tell you the forecast without hesitation.
I'm always checking the BOM website religiously and it's first in my bank of 'favourites' tabs.
The Elders 28 Rainfall Chart is on my regular hit list (only a medium probability of rain for Magoo's birthday party at two and a half weeks out) and I'm loving myself some www.weatherzone.com too.
|Be still my beating heart :-)|
I get excited at the prospect of bright mornings, sunny days and balmy evenings - and get disgruntled when 'they' get it all wrong.
I'm definitely a believer in 'Seasonally Affected Disorder' and feel that people's moods are often affected by the weather.
I find it very hard to be down and out when the sun is shining - but am much less inclined to hang about chatting if my feet are cold thank you very much.
However, last weekend we had a family photo shoot booked.
As the end of the week approached, the forecast was becoming dodgier and dodgier - until the day itself saw a severe weather warning issued and torrential downpours.
After to and fro-ing with the photographer for a couple of days, a last minute decision was made to brave the weather with boots and brollies anyway.
All that weather watching to go right ahead regardless!
For the record, we had an absolute ball in the wind and rain.
The actual shots? Well, we'll see!
You a weather nerd?
Couldn't care less?
