Weather certainly has been on my mind these past few weeks. It has reached frigid temperatures again the past few days. A frost bite warning was in effect for most of this day with students being kept in for recess until late this afternoon. Weather always seems to be on people’s minds. It is often the first topic of conversation or when meeting someone new it is a safe, banal topic of chatter to fill the silence. Perhaps, as Ambrose Bierce implies in this quote we worry and talk about the weather so much because in our ancient and not so ancient past weather held so much more importance – in fact our survival often hinged on the ebb and flow of weather patterns.
