Storm's coming

Cloudy with a chance of nastiness

The weather outside this morning is frightful. Well, not really. It's Canada and it's winter, so none of this - the bitter cold, the major dump of snow, the wind - should be a surprise to anyone.

Yet Facebook and Twitter are stuffed to the gills this morning with endless complaints about the weather and how it's stressing them out, ruining their best-laid plans and stunting their children's growth.

Okay, maybe that last part is a bit of a stretch, but still.

When crazy weather rolls in, better to leave a few extra minutes to stare up and enjoy the show. This building thunderstorm from last summer ranks as one of my favourite weather moments of the year, and I'll keep staring up and out when Mother Nature has a tantrum. Because we can't change or control what Ma Nature dishes out. But we can sure change how we choose to respond to whatever's going on around us.

Your turn: Your favourite weather moment...discuss.

One simple favorite mother nature moment, is to be wandering under a bright summer's day sky and suddenly I'm gift with warm rain drops falling against my face. Sun still bright!

Last Spring west coast, (Vancouver) we had two storms circling each other and then they met in the middle. It was the most awe inspiring moment of my life! My Jack Russell didn't like it at all but he survived.
