"After the Rain"

I am a self-described weather geek. The Weather Network and I are good friends, as are I and Environment Canada’s website. My Mom expects that I’m going to become a meteorologist after I’m done law school.

My fascination with weather began when I was a little kid – and it was created out of fear. One afternoon a huge hailstorm broke the living room window in our house. From that day forward, I have been very afraid of wind.

I was terrified of thunderstorms for a lot of years, even into my teens. As a kid, I would faithfully watch the weather every day on the evening news; if the possibility of a thunderstorm existed, I had a hard time falling asleep. Because I was an incessant cloud watcher, my Mom came up with the brilliant idea of ‘night clouds.’ For years I believed that specific ‘night clouds’ existed; these ‘night clouds’ were nice clouds, not storm clouds (Yeesh. Still can’t believe I got fooled by that one). During big thunderstorms, I would pack up all of my important worldly possessions and hide in our basement until the worst of the storm had passed.

Now I’m much less afraid of storms. I’m still scared of windstorms, but I can handle anything else. But I still love weather. On a day like today, when the radar looks like this…


I am a very happy weather watcher!
