When I was working, I never bothered about listening or viewing weather forecasts. No amount of good or bad forecasts were going to change the fact that I had to go to work. Sun, rain, gales, storms, I slogged it into the CBD for an 8 am start.
But now that I am retired, I watch and listen to the weather forecast as if my life depended on it. I power walk, hike, cycle, holiday, and swim, all dependent on the weather.
I have been known to listen almost hourly on the radio for the weather , watch many channels, one after the other to be assured I have the best forecast going. My swimming friend, J, is fond of ten day forecasts. They're always wrong!
We are now over a month into Autumn, and the weather is pretty good. I passed a bushy-shrub thing yesterday, bursting with Autumn berries. It was overhanging from a garden into a reserve. I worried so much about children eating these berries. I was told when I was a child never to touch red berries.
