If you were in the New York City/New Jersey area yesterday, Wednesday, July 18, 2012, then you saw and heard a lot of rain, thunder, lightning and wind.
Personally, I loved EVERY second of it! For me, a Storm is nothing less than Sacred. This one was especially beautiful and powerful for me. I lost count of how many lightning bolts, thunder rolls and torrential rains I saw and heard and felt. Not to mention the wild winds.
Quite frankly, I AM not a fan of complaining about the weather. Which Re-Minds me of a quote that, I believe, is attributed to (the late and great) Eleanor Roosevelt: “Great people talk about ideas. Average people talk about things. Small people talk about other people.” And, according to (the current and great) Robert Alvarez, “Complain about the weather.”
How many times have you heard someone complain about the weather? How many times have you complained about the weather? My biggest pet peeve is when someone who has lived in the area for years and years and then complains about the high temperatures and humidity. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have wanted to walk up to that person and say, “Oh, are you new in town?” Really, this person has lived in the area for YEARS! They know that, sometime in June, and July and August and maybe September the humidity and the temperature shall be in the 90s. Nothing new, nothing new at all.
Personally, I can find enjoyment and pleasure in all types of weather. I love snow because I can make Snow Angels. And although not a fan of excessively hot weather, I know that flowers bloom more powerfully and fruits ripen more richly because of it. And the Sun is so needed to keep all of us alive on this Planet.
Of course, Autumn is a Celebration of the Earth, and Winter is the Season during which I was born.
Ladies and gentlemen, although there are certain weather patterns that simply do not fill me with glee, I can honestly say that I love living in an area where I can see and feel all four Seasons. Yes, there are people living in San Diego, California that encounter fully sunny weather and temps in the 80s, and they are so happy about that. And there are people living in Alaska that are going to see a lot of snow and ice and experience temps in the 10s or so, and they are happy with that.
But for those of us that live in an area where one sees and feels all four Seasons, the weather is truly temporary and not worthy of complaint. Besides, it is safe to say that, six months from now, the people who were complaining the loudest about the high temperatures and humidity levels are also going to complain about the very low temperatures and the wind chill factor. As Ralph Kramden would say, “Some people are never satisfied!”
Dear blog readers, although part of this post is a complaint (If one more person asks me “Hot enough for you…” Truly, it is a good thing that Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch does not own a Glock 9 mil.), the bigger part of me invites you to find some good in all kinds of weather patterns. Yes, I know that some weather occurrences have literally killed people and animals, but this post is not about that. This post is about enjoying what you can.
Do I care for 90+ temperature and 90% + humidity? Hell. NO! But can I appreciate it? Yes. Yes I can.
