I am a weather nerd

And proud of it. My friend and colleague, Dorothy, appreciates my special nerdness relating to the weather. When we have traveled for business, and others are out painting the town red (or whatever color one paints a town now), Dorothy and I would be curled up in our jammies in our hotel room, drinking tea, watching the Weather Channel. Yup, that's weather nerdness to the extreme.

With that introduction, it's raining here. It's RAINING here. Lisa sent it and I blame her. Rain in the valley of the sun is a GOOD thing; rain in Michigan in January is, well, unnatural. If this were fluffy white stuff, it would be coming down in feet, not inches...perhaps even Calvin would close! We are getting a lot of rain. And tomorrow, the talking weather nerds are saying thunderstorms. And in perfect Michigan weather, followed closely by 2-4 inches of snow. Go figure.

The very best part of the Weather Channel is the Local on the 8s. The weather nerd administrators are some of the few in media who understand HOW TO USE AN APOSTROPHE. It is quite a feat to resist the urge to add that small character and they don't. Kudos to them. Along with the Local on the 8s is some of the very best music that I have heard. It is nice background music. Yes, I have contacted them about the music and GOOD NEWS, they are starting to sell their background music. It is available at Target. Did you have any idea that that weather channel could offer such a diverse catalog of services and information? Consider yourself in the know with the other special weather nerds. ;)

Good night from Michigan.
