Weather Forecasters

While weather forecasters think to hone
their skill by pouring over images
from satellites and charts,
or study their computer programmes
believing it a science not an art,
while Mother Nature yet delights
in unpredictability and shams,
I think I could likely do as well
with a piece of seaweed or a fir cone.

When I wrote this earlier today it looked as if the forecasts were wrong again, having promised sunshine it had clouded over and looked like rain but no, the cloud dispersed and the sun came out. It’s a lovely day!

    I thought exactly the same, it looked as though we were in for another grey, wet day. The law of averages says they have to get it right at some point and today looks like it.

    Hmmm. It is mid April isn’t it… our forecasters say snow flurries this week…
    Really come on – I want spring already and once my law dries from last night’s rain I have to mow it! 🙂

      Hubby mowed the lawn for the first time this year yesterday. Another glorious day today but thunder forecast for the weekend, fortunately not snow though!
