Weather of course
'So is it cold enough for yah?'
'Got enough snow?'
'Just what we need, more snow [rain, sleet, winds...or dry weather]'
These are words of greeting in our area.
Sort of makes me laugh, but it does show how integral the weather is in our conversations.
While at work yesterday, as I'd walk around to pick up vehicle 'stickers' from visitors or vendors, the common saying was....
'Enjoying the weather?'
I imagine it won't be much different when the temps are 90 degrees and hot and humid either.
'Hot enough for yah?' comes to mind.
The real upside of these terrible cold conditions~~we are supposed to be in the -20 to -30 degree air temperature range today through Friday, is that when it does warm up to above zero, it will feel like a heat wave!
Yesterday it was -5 and I was outside a good part of the day enjoying the sunshine. Of course I was dressed for the weather and the winds were not blowing.
I'm also getting braver about driving our roads in the winter. No, I don't go fast, and I don't do stupid things, but I am careful and tend to get where I need to go.
Can't say it thrills me to drive on awful roads, but there is no choice!
Have a good day and 'enjoy your weather' whatever it may be in your part of the world.
[5" + 36"= 41" of snow so far this winter season]
