The weather is neurotic

If there's a trained mental health professional among my readers, perhaps she/he can supply the proper term for someone who, when genuinely complimented and appreciated, reacts by destroying the thing for which they were complimented and appreciated.

The weather here in Lone Pine had been excellent since I arrived the other day. "This is perfect," I commented to Lou.

"Couldn't ask for anything better," he replied.

Overhearing us, the weather thought, "You like that, huh? Well, see if you like it now!"

The wind started howling out of the north last night. The temperature has dropped and the wind chill cuts right through us like icicles.

We do not like this. Not at all.

We had planned to go up to the Mt. Whitney Portal tomorrow, but not if it's going to be like this, only colder. We don't even want to be outside. All hiking, fishing, sightseeing and night photography are on hold. It's turn-on-the-heater-and-get-under-the-blankets time. Winter is back.


  1. It is frustrating when spring can't decide whether to be winter or summer. I, for, one, wish it would be a smooth transition without all this jumping back and forth. So irritating. :p

  2. Certainly is a pain in the butt to have to endure this weather's crazy behaviour,but it seems like this phenomenon is everywhere more or less. We really need to consider moving to Mars for example, perhaps is a little more stable on the red planet, LOL.

  3. I agree with you whether or not you are neurotic should be determined by a trained mental health professional.

    1. ???????? Non-sequitor ???

    2. That's Non Sequitur, spelling does count even for those wearing a Guy Fawkes mask.

    3. Really ????
