“Weather” is both satire and a precise critique of what it means to live in this time, when every day we’re besieged by worst-case scenarios. And yet we persist, we continue fighting for the things we believe in personally, for the people we love, for the things we believe in.—USA Today
The above part of a USA Today review of the new Jenny Offill novel provides food for thought for everyday Americans. That accurately sums up, I think, the view that most of us have regarding the weather each day. We wake up expecting the worst. If we don’t get it, we’re relieved. If we do, then we do what we have to do in order to get through it and deal with the most important people and things in our lives.
Good morning! We are starting off cold this morning, with temperatures mainly in the 20s. There are even a few readings in the mid-upper teens across our northern zones. Under partly-mostly sunny skies, most of us will warm into the low-mid 40s by afternoon. Have a great weekend! pic.twitter.com/qzNL8sJ470

Perhaps a chilly Saturday in February may prompt you to curl up with this book or another one on your list. It certainly will be a good day to read as we rise on the coldest morning of 2020. Sunday will warm back up into the low 50’s under mostly sunny skies.
