When I lived in Australia, their weather reports completely confounded me. I remember one week the weather was “Fine” every single day. What does “Fine” mean anyway? I didn’t understand (if it was going to rain it would say “Rain”). That’s when I first became conscious of how weather obsessed Canadians are (myself included). We need more detail than “Fine”! How else can we analyze the weather and map out our every move around it? Here’s one of Rick Mercer’s rants from last year. I think he gets it right. Especially during our winters.
