We often hear of bad weather, but in reality, no weather is bad. It is all delightful, though in different ways. Some weather may be bad for farmers or crops, but for man all kinds are good.

When storm sweeps across the land or when sudden cold grips with icy fingers, there is the temptation to say that nature is giving us a hard time of it. But the fact is that nature is neither vindictive nor benevolent. Man merely finds conditions to his liking or his distaste.

The big primal forces, of which wind and weather are prime examples, were doing pretty much these same things before man appeared; and if man should vanish as a species, they would go right on doing those things. ~Hal Borland
