Weather must be the common ground we have as humans.  I can’t think of anything as universally appealing as the weather.  Our health?  No way – he’s fat and she smokes and people die – tons of controversy.   Politics or living in a democracy?  Obviously not.   Ok, so what about something safe like fruit.  I think we can all share fruit as common ground and can’t possibly be offended by it.  Of course you may prefer bananas over peaches or even hate blackberries, but honestly nobody really cares.  But start talking about weather, and you’ll get a pretty positive response from anyone.  No matter who you are, what your lifestyle is, or where you live we all seem to care a lot about the weather.  I guess its because it affects everyone equally?  Water affects us all equally, but we don’t care to talk about it.   It must be the variety that makes weather so interesting.  I should have been a meteorologist.  I have a friend who’s a meteorologist *ahem, G* and he’s an excellent conversationalist.  Check out the long term forecast:

Nanaimo weather

  1. 🙂 …or maybe, if you study meteorology and haven’t a real clue what you’re doing and have to give presentations then it trains you in the art of spontaneous creative… er… storytelling.

    Keep up the good work – it’s fun reading the blog.
