What is it about the weather....

I have noticed that Americans are very preoccupied with the weather. If there is a snow storm coming, all the news channel would set up a storm center to bring us the latest progress.

There is always a big to do whether it is a winter storm or a rain storm. Being a meteorologist is actually a profession here!

The weather is also a conversation topic if you're in an elevator with a neighbor you hardly know and feel awkward with the silence.

I always say to hubby, I don't know why Americans are so interested in the weather. In Malaysia, nobody cares about the weather. He said, that is because in Malaysia, it is either hot and humid or rainy.

Well, that's true.

At any rate, Msians don't care coz our meteorological forecasts are SELDOM ACCURATE !

Don't know what these gwei lohs so worry about the weather. If it's winter time, wear extra cloth, if summer, wear less. It's that simple, right?
