The weather affects us all, in various ways, physically, mentally and emotionally. Whether you have to cancel the family day out, or have to rebuild the family home, the affects of the weather and its extremes are variable.
Sunshine, warmth and happiness outdoors to rain, cold and confined to the indoors. Hail, damaging and dangerous, high winds, disastrous and frightening.
Then there are the natural disasters like earthquakes, landslides and bushfires. These all have such profound affects on the lives of many. The emotional trauma of losing loved ones, the mental reconstruction of the community and physical rebuilding of structures.
We try to predict the weather daily, and these predictions have saved lives. When will we listen with open ears to those warnings. Prepare for the weather, whatever the weather.
There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad preparation, whether it be warmer clothing or even avoiding a particular climate all together.
