Let’s talk about the weather…

photoLongtime readers of this blog will know that the Weather Obsession gene runs long and strong in my family. Currently, however, it seems that the whole country has been swept up in the thrill of the forecast – or, if the number of “gosh, it’s hot” tweets, “how hot is it?” conversations at the supermarket, and “look, I’m frying an egg on the driveway” images filling up my Facebook newsfeed are anything to go by.

In honour of the heatwave sweeping Australia, and the fact that, if only for this week, everyone has become a member of my family, I bring you my collection of weather-related posts.

I know what you’re thinking – so many. The worst part? That’s not even all of them.

Clearly I inherited that genetic thing after all.

Have you had umpteen conversations about the weather this week?

  1. I want hold it against you that you talk about the weather heaps personally I look outside and see it’s sunny or raining then that’s it. Weather chat would only take up about 5 mins of my time if that. I still love you

  2. Yes! We claim the genetic predisposition to weather obsession! We start our day by checking our own thermometer, and consulting three different web sites for predictions. We have to decide how to dress for the day’s activities–and since I’m in the Northern Hemisphere, we’re talking how many layers. We end our day watching [tomorrow’s] early afternoon matches at the Australian Open in Melbourne, where the temps have been over 100 all week, and professional athletes are showing the strain. Plus there are all those human interest shots of people in the fountains. And then there’s hurricane season. . . .
