Paul Huschilt's Expect Everything
Weather: There's Change


Ah, the end of February.  Today’s forecast is Sun, Snow, Rain, Ice Pellets, Partly Sunny, Cloudy, or maybe Cold.  You can never know.  The forecasters would get it right if they just said “Change”.  You may have heard me go on about February before, but it’s February again, only a year since the last one.
 
Since I know the weather routine, I opted for a sure thing for this time of year.  I looked out the window.  Arrgh.  Snow.  Heavy wet (snowman) snow had fallen overnight.  I bundled up to walk to the store by way of ravine trails near home.  10 minutes later I was boot deep in 5 cm of snow over a layer of 5 cm of mud.  And it was warm.  I was melting as quickly as the snow.  My looking out the window before I left was just about as accurate as the weather folks.  Turns out the weather word for the day was in fact “Change”.
 
All of you know that change is one of my favourite topics.  And it turns out, no matter how ready I am for it, there’s always some surprise with change.  Perhaps that’s why it’s interesting and can be daunting at the same time.  While slogging through the muck, I thought of weather AS change.
 
Imagine every day is 22 degrees and sunny.  A climate where there’s no change.  I say that’s not weather.  It may be nice for a while, but wouldn’t you get bored?  Just a little?  Weather is the temperature and the sky changing.  It can be way more interesting.  Without weather there’s no pea soup fog, there are no rainbows, and no snowmen in the yard.
 
This month, have a look at the weather as change.  You may be surprised at how interesting you find it.
 
By the way, the sun came out on my way home.  I have to admit I liked that.
