As a nation we're famous for not only its changeability but our habit of discussing it at length. In happier times many of us can't wait to flee our native land and fly off to anywhere that will promise us some sunshine.
One thing's for certain. We can't control the weather, and yesterday compared to today is an example of how quickly it can change.
But how does anyone define 'bad' weather? I can no longer tolerate extreme heat or extreme cold (I think my thermostat's stopped working in my old age!) So what's good for me may not be good for someone else.
Here's what that man of many talents, John Ruskin, said about the weather.
"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather".
I'm inclined to agree. What about you?
Please have a happy day, whatever the weather sends us!
