I have long had an unnatural fear of storms. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been terrified at the prospect of sitting through a session of thunder and lightning, high winds and heavy rains. Even worse for me would be to get caught outside unaware that this would soon happen.
So, I am thankful for all the Meteorologists who study for years to tell what the weather is likely to be on a given day. Even though they don’t always get it right, just knowing that the probability of something happening exists is enough to give me some semblance of comfort and allow me to center myself for whatever may come down the road.
Believe me, it’s not pretty when I get caught unawares.
