It is understandable that we want to know what the weather is going to be like in the future so that we can plan. I suppose that in the grand scheme of things we are getting better at doing this and forecasts are getting more accurate.
But the weather keeps letting us down. It keeps doing things it wasn’t meant to. We get annoyed at the weather forecasters who told us it was going to be otherwise. “They said it was going to be sunny”.
It’s like we want our money back. Life wasn’t meant to be like this. How could it let us down so badly?
Our attitude to weather fascinates me. A weather forecaster the other day actually said “There will be a lot of weather this coming week”. What the hell does that mean? There is always weather. The day there is no weather there is no us to see it!
