High Pressure System with a Chance of Perky

Most of the things that delineate others' good days from the bad are things over which they have little or no control. Realistically speaking, that is. One could simply quit a job or divorce a spouse over the balance of days in which the relationship with lover or employer are less than radiant, but most aren't willing to reorder their lives so easily or so often.

These things being so arbitrary and so inconsequential, I've decided to base my evaluation of each day on only the weather. Really, it's the deciding factor in most other people's days, so I might as well try it.

My advantage, I like to think, is that I lived in England and the upper mid-west as a child. When the day is cold or rainy, I'm delightfully reminded of my childhood and when it's sunny and pleasant, well, it's just sunny and pleasant. It's a win/win all around.

Thusly, I have concluded that every day is a good day.

I'm not sure how long I'll be able to persist in this world view but it's worked pretty well for most of the afternoon.

Um...and you're also with me, who just happens to work at The Weather Channel. And who also just happened to get a shit-ton of weather info. dropped on her brain during her radio session yesterday afternoon, complete with a packet about pressure systems & fronts to read by Saturday. So...yeah, I concur. Weather sounds like a win/win/WIN situation now.

I just can't believe you left me out of your Weather Analysis. :o(

;oP

As regards the previous post...to use an expression I've heard only from Atlanta-based weather persons (usually referring to wind chill) the "feels like" temperature at your apartment just plummeted to the single digits. Bundle up.

Every day above the ground is a good day.

I heard it can get pretty rainy and ugly over in England but it's still a place I'd love to see. So far where I am the day is awful because the weather is awful. We've fot sleet and snow falling over here and it sucks.
