I think this is one topic that comes up in every conversation. We just love to talk about it. We can never be happy about the weather but we like to talk about it. They have dedicated tv channels and radio stations just to tell people what the weather is going to be like.
So how is the weather in your place?. Hmm...let me take a guess: It is either too hot or too cold, too rainy or too humid. Or may be you are one of the few who live in expensive Cal and can say it is sunny and nice. But then you pay exhorbitant taxes and money to enjoy that weather. :-) So I think that is fair.
And as always the grass is greener on the other side. We think the person who is living on the other side of the planet has the best weather you could possibly imagine and you wish you were in that place rather than where you are stuck right now. I was in Arizona for a long time and it was really hot. I mean really really hot. Me and the people around me used to complain how hot it was and that the weather was real bad. Now I am no longer in a desert but in rainy Seattle. Now me and people around me complain how wet and rainy it is and wish it were a little hotter.
But, when it comes to defending your weather to friends and relatives who are in a different climatic zone we take on a different persona. We now love where we live and dont care how the weather is. I am sure just like me all of you have been asked by others: How is the weather? And, I am sure just like me all of you would have replied. "Not bad. It is rainy but then you get used to it after a while". I have hardly seen anyone say. "The weather here sucks. I hate it".
All I want to say is, I think all this blah - blah about the weather is just a moo point. We are just stuck with what we have and we are just going to keep talking about it just as we have for so many years.
