I’m a weather junkie. More often than not, I’m checking out the Weather Channel to see if there’s any precipitation coming this way and if the temperature is above freezing — important if you plan to walk before the sun comes up — or to see what the forecast is for the rest of the week, knowing full well it can change at any moment. Nature is fickle and fascinating and deserves our respect. Storms are fascinating to watch on screen, less so in person. I’ve not seen a tornado in person, nor do I care to, and I watch in awe at the destruction they can wreak.
