Weather & Death of the Air Popper

I just finished making an emergency run to replace a well used air popper. The urge for popcorn overtook us while watching the persistent rain through the front picture window of our home. A fire was glowing in our white brick fireplace as Barry was wrapped in fleece on the couch. Just as the butter was melting, the air popper protested in a burst of smoke. So off I went to Walmart (spying a gorgeous rainbow on the way) to appease the popcorn gene. "I am woman, hear me roar..."

With a tummy full of popcorn, I want to share some of my favorite weather quotes. Enjoy.
Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while. -Kin Hubbard

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. -Langston Hughes

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. -Patrick Young

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain. -Author Unknown

Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains. -Henry Ward Beecher

Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main...
-Thomas Lovell Beddoes

The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency. -Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons

Where does the white go when the snow melts? -Author Unknown

A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together! -Author Unknown

There's one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbor's. -Clyde Moore

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine. -Anthony J. D'Angelo, The College Blue Book

My boys have been insisting on skillet popped corn! (it IS good :)

Whether the weather is cold...or whether the weather is hot...we'll weather the weather, whether we like it or not!

Thank goodness for Wal Mart when these emergencies arise! I loved the weather quotes, I sure needed them last weekend, but will keep them handy in the future!

Wow, beautiful quotes! I'll never think of rain quite the same way again!
