Weather Chat

In the UK, people love to talk about the weather. I always found this amusing, because it rained often there. Yet the amount of time that people spent talking about the rain, you would have thought that drizzle in June, or downpours in November, were unusual.

I have witnessed a similar phenomenon in Atlanta. It has been hot over the past week — nearly 100 degrees. And everyone I meet or run into can’t say enough about it.

From what I hear, it’s at least this hot all summer. So I expected Atlantans to shrug nonchalantly when the temperatures climbed. But instead, they discuss the weather with alarm, punctuated with expressions like: “it’s hot as blazes out there!”
