The idea that the weather and people’s moods are connected is quite old. Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?
Welcome to New England. Technically, our most popular regional sport is politics with baseball running a hot second. But really, the one sport in which everyone of any age can actively participate is complaining about the weather.
Winter is too long, too snowy, too icy and much too cold. I couldn’t agree more and everyone is cranky and whiny from the first snow until final melting.
Spring? What spring? Where are the flowers? Why don’t we get a decent spring season? Is it the punishment of a malign deity? Until the day lilies bloom, New Englanders are cranky and whiny.
Summer is usually too hot. Then again, it may not be hot enough. It is always too humid. It makes everyone cranky and whiny.
Autumn is everyone’s favorite season but it’s never long enough. As often as not, heavy rains from tropical storms ruin the foliage, which makes everyone cranky and whiny.
For everyone, the weather provides something about which to complain. I love New England.
