I wasn’t focused at all on the weather when I was young and in school.
I didn’t undoubtedly care if there were hurricanes poised to hit our part or if all of us were going to have freezing temperatures overnight and into the following day.
Whenever I wasn’t at house letting our parents worry about these things, I was safe in our dorm room at school letting the school administrators worry about them. Hurricane Sandy came and went while in this time, and I only vaguely remember some tropical storm strength weather before the storm headed northward toward New York, New Jersey, and New England; I had a friend living in Brooklyn at the time and he told myself and others that the bottom levels of his cabin building flooded from storm surge. They had to shelter in place for 2 afternoons until the water levels receded enough where they could get out safely and get to a shelter. These afternoons I’m consistently checking our weather app, especially while in extreme storm season. It’s not just hurricanes and tropical storms, all of us will get a storm cell off the ocean that picks up extreme strength from the sizzling water before blasting us with wind and rain when it comes ashore. These storms will often yield tornadoes and waterspouts. While all of us experienced the start of storm season, all of us were still experiencing Wintertide weather in early Springtime. And throughout the Springtime season, temperatures hovered in the 40s and 50s with some afternoons dipping into the high 20s with light snowfall. I had to use the heating proposal more this year than in any of the prior 4 years living in this house.
