Don't like the weather?
Then just wait a few hours until you get something you do like.
Yesterday at this time we were covered with roiling clouds and waiting for a tornado to drop in for dinner. Today has been wonderful: lovely sun, balmy breezes, fleecy clouds. The dogs and I took a long ride in the UTV with Emma working some lush fields along the way. She is a passionate hunter, and a good-looking field is more than she can stand if she can't get out in it and cast for birds— or anything else of interest. Some curlews and a few meadowlarks were about all she found today but she was happy anyway.
We are in bright sun and in the background, to the right, is a rainstorm over the hill. Never touched us.
Ironically, as I am writing this a weather alert just chimed. Severe thunderstorm warning for tonight and another tornado two counties over. What did I just say about waiting for a change in the weather?
