Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
Today I’m thankful for Weather
Don’t knock the weather; nine tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.
It seems we very often take the weather for granted, but as we all know it’s a force to be reckoned with. It’s something that is rarely perfect and we complain if we have too much rain or if it’s too dry. We don’t like to be too hot or too cold, but there is a reason we have it all.
Here in northern Ohio, I use the central heating for the better part of 6 months of the year. Down south they use it much less but make up for it by using air conditioning. We have learned to adjust to the temperatures by keeping our homes comfortable.
I do remember the days when the only relief from the heat was by using fans. When I was born one of the most popular methods of heating homes was coal. Now we have electric, gas, turbine wind power and even solar energy supplying the power to do so.
We have no power to control the weather, but we do try to control our living environments.
The pictures today are from the view from the porch showing our weather this year. I try to take at least one a month.
On my thankful list for today:
Each of us makes his own weather, determines the color of the skies in the emotional universe which he inhabits.
