Sing it with me! It’s a round.
Whether the weather be cool or
Whether the weather be hot
Whether the weather be fair or
Whether the weather be not.
Whatever the weather,
We’ll weather the weather –
Whether we like it or not!
Then again, planning ahead seems to guarantee that Mother Nature will throw a wrench into the works, or at least a storm our way. No? Chuck thinks so, in this actual email exchange with his loving wife. Yes, me.
Me: We’re supposed to get unseasonably warm temps this weekend. Maybe I’ll spread compost. When we get the van back, I’d really like a Big Bucket of leaf compost from the brush dump. I plan to spread it in the far back, where the berm will go. It’ll cover the barriers I set up last fall and the layer of very-fertile bunny litter and, um, waste.
Chuck: You must stop this kind of talk or else you will be THE cause of a late blizzard. Remember what just happened? All because Pete took the sandbags out of the back of his pickup.
Me: But… but… it’s supposed to be in the 50s this weekend. On top of that, one of my coworkers is selling seeds and flats of plants for her daughter’s fundraiser. I’ll show you when I get home.
Well, people, Chuck isn’t one to give up or let anyone else have the last Email word. Here’s his response:
We’ll be run out of town. The headline will read:
