I love all seasons but most of all I enjoy the fall, when people burn their fireplaces and there is a bite of the cold air. All the leaves are flying around and the smell of burning leaves fills the air! When the leaves change colours, it is so pleasant to look at the mountains. I don’t know what it is that makes me so happy but I think it’s really beautiful! I love that weather because it’s not too hot and not too cold. I really like it when it’s overcast and a bit windy with a little mist in the air, especially during October.
I live in Arizona and find that variety is what makes the weather interesting. Here we get many days of sunny skies but this helps one to appreciate how beautiful clouds can be, how refreshing a shower can be and how cooling breezes can be. There is of course destructive weather which no one likes but it is all part of what makes us appreciate the good weather. Idealistically thinking there is no such thing as ‘bad’ weather, just different kinds of good weather. I like whatever there is at the time. It really depends on my mood.
My favourite weather? Well, it’s a difficult question. I love cloudy days where the wind is crisp and you can smell the leaves and grass fresh after a good pour. I love sunshine, but I would take heavy rain and thunderstorms over everything. I love a really good thunderstorm with lots of lightning and thunder. Am I strange for this? I sit out on my porch with a cup of coffee and watch it come down. I love the sound of the rain! It’s so soothing and relaxing. I think it’s my favourite weather, especially at night.
Although I love the rain, thunderstorm, and the slapping of drops on the roof, nothing beats bright sunny weather. And the perfect way to enjoy it is to spend a day at the beach, lying under a sunshade, eating there (just be careful not to get sand in your food, which happens so often) or making sand castles no matter how old you are. I mean if you live in a place that has sunny weather all the time, why not go out and use it, you know? But don’t forget to put on a lot of sunscreen, just to be on the safe side.
I think we spend too much time worrying about the weather. Actually, I like all kinds of weather but I definitely enjoy frost and snow because it looks so beautiful and happens very rarely. You end up with everything being white all around. Snow looks beautiful when falling and it can be a lot of fun, too. Many people are saddened by snow because they don’t realize that there are so many fun activities that you can do in the snow, for example, playing hockey, skiing or snowboarding. But I hate it when the snow goes away and all the streets are watery.
I hate summer and hot weather. You got to deal with flies, mosquitoes and bees, and you have to deal with it being hot as hell on top of that! You see, you put on enough clothes in winter to get warm, but in summer, you can’t take off enough clothes to get cool. I know that you can jump in a pool, but if you can’t swim, then you just have to dress as cool as possible. I really enjoy when it rains, very briefly, in the afternoon. After it’s been really hot all day, that little bit of rain instantly cools everything off, and the sky is a stunning mix of black clouds and bright blue.
