Topic of Conversation

I have had more conversations on the topic of weather over the last two days than I can remember.   We are talking weather because we know as the number of hours of sunshine shrink each day, the 60 and 70 degree days are severely numbered. One thing about living in Duluth is you learn to appreciate a nice day.  The last two days I have seen many people almost giddy with how great the weather is.  And of course, it is all we are talking about. 

A friend who grew up in Duluth told me a story recently that when she was attending college in New York City, a fellow student commented that she talked about the weather a lot and asked if she was studying meteorology.  She wasn't studying meteorology-she's from Duluth and Duluthians talk about the weather - a lot....That was the best story I have heard in a long time.  I like it so much I have already borrowed it a few times.  It has received a lot of laughs-especially the last couple of days when everyone is talking about the weather.

I'll talk about the weather any time.  It sure beats talking about crime and the problems we face.....
