No love for the weather watchers
Those of us who love studying the weather are often caught in an unfortunate bind. We wait and hope for big weather events in our backyards — snowstorms, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, extreme heat or cold — all the while knowing that none of these things are particularly good for us or for our neighbors. We're part of the small group of adults who root for the storm to hit us instead of going harmlessly out to sea, who wake up in the middle of the night to check the radar, who keep looking outside, waiting for the show to start.
