Between the cat and my age I’m getting up earlier all the time. I made it to 5am yesterday which is better than usual with a nocturnal child; when I rolled over and rearranged Mooshy Pillow, ready to doze back off, Cat decided it must be play time. Nipping at my toes and climbing awkwardly across my head to the night stand and then the dresser, knocking all my things to the floor (what the?? where’s the grace? where’s the instinctive style of cats slinking? God knows, Chunk got her name honestly) she quickly convinces me that I want to get up. Or that I’m going to get up whether I want or not.
Morning ritual – visit Shrine of Coffee Pot, pay homage to hot coffee in my cup, lovely coffee, steaming coffee, glistening black nectar. I don’t want to go in the cold dark to get the paper so I head downstairs to my office.
Knowing I have mileage on the books this morning I check weather.com and immediately sigh. I feel our relationship is going wrong. The trust is gone, the joy in the relationship is gone. I’m thinking of breaking up but it’s a habit now. I’ve got to start seeing other weather sites but I’m at that point in the relationship that I continue to return to the safe and familiar even while I’m hurt and lied to daily. And, as has happened so frequently recently, weather.com blandly assures me it will be 33 and partly cloudy when I set out about 7:15am, and the little icon shows mostly sun with a littlebitty cloud on it:
That looks like a lot more sun than cloud to me. Unfortunately weather.com has assured me of the same thing many times recently and when I cheerfully accept its pronouncements of sunny, partly cloudy weather I am constantly betrayed with steel grey skies and chill winds.
I’m beginning to feel that weather.com is no longer really putting its heart into this. I feel it’s phoning it in. However, right now it’s about 5:30am and still dark as night outside so I decide, like you should in a relationship, to give it the benefit of doubt.
This is what actually looks like at 7:15am:
And this is what looks like about 75 minutes later:
