Scattered thunderstorms almost every day right now in northern Vermont – lots of great clouds, some spectacular, but little if any actual rain right where we happen to be. But when it does rain, it really pours.
Our attitudes toward the weather have similarities to our attitudes toward life – it’s changing constantly, sometimes calm, often threatening, occasionally stormy. Anticipating and preparing for the really bad parts takes up so much of our time, but the actual really bad parts are rare and short-lived. There’s a rainbow after the storm passes.
In my case, I prefer the stormy weather to the calm. Okay, I’m not 100% sure the analogy holds that far, but I’m intrigued by the possibility.
