No matter how rich you become, how famous or powerful, when you die the size of your funeral will still pretty much depend on the weather.
Oh, what a blamed uncertain thing This pesky weather is; It blew and snew and then it thew, And now, by jing, it's friz!
The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
Heat, ma am! It was so dreadful here that I found there was nothing left for it but to take off my flesh and sit in my bones.
"You have of late stood out against your brother, and he hath taken you newly into his grace; where it is impossible you should take true root but by the fair weather that you make yourself: it is needful that you frame the season for your own harvest
Certain accidents of the weather, for instance, were almost dreaded by me, because they woke the being I was always lulling, and stirred up a craving cry I could not satisfy.
The weather is here, wish you were beautiful
Some are weather-wise, some are otherwise
There will be a rain dance Friday night, weather permitting
Typhoons are a sort of violent whirlwinds. Before these whirlwinds come on... there appears a heavy cloud to the northeast which is very black near the horizon, but toward the upper part is a dull reddish color. The tempest came with great violence, but after a while, the winds ceased all at once and a calm succeeded. This lasted... an hour, more or less, then the gales were turned around, blowing with great fury from the southwest
[John] Dalton was a man of regular habits. For fifty-seven years he walked out of Manchester every day; he measured the rainfall, the temperatureóa singularly monotonous enterprise in this climate. Of all that mass of data, nothing whatever came. But of the one searching, almost childlike question about the weights that enter the construction of these simple moleculesóout of that came modern atomic theory. That is the essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to the pertinent answer
Rain. Some fat, smiling weatherman would say it was†raw.
During the next thirty years the pole-ward migration of populations continued. A few fortified cities defied the rising water-levels and the encroaching jungles, building elaborate sea-walls around their perimeters, but one by one these were breached. Only within the former Arctic and Antarctic Circles was life tolerable. The oblique incidence of the sun’s rays provided a shield against the more powerful radiation. Cities on higher ground in mountainous areas nearer the Equator had been abandoned, despite their cooler temperatures, because of the diminished atmospheric protection
Despite its regular annual occurrence in Japan, winter seems to be regarded as an aberration, so the cold is dealt with on the ad hoc basis of dragging out heaters and putting on extra clothing rather than insulating the walls. I eventually came to the conclusion that deep down, Japanese feel that putting up with the cold is good for you
The climate is undoubtedly very desirable to live in. In summer the heats are usually moderated by the sea breeze, which sets in early, and in winter the degree of cold is so slight as to occasion no inconvenience.

Weather means more when you have a garden.† There's nothing like†listening to a shower and thinking† how it is soaking in and†around your lettuce and green beans.
Every year it seems to me I hear complaints about spring.† It is either†"late" or "unusually cold," "abnormally dry" or "fantastically wet,"†for no one is ever willing to admit that there is no such thing as a normal spring.
The golden rule of gardening is to pay attention†to local conditions of weather and soil.
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.
