Meriden Poet: WEATHER or not...

Meriden Poet: WEATHER or not...



The ‘Weather Wonks’ are in their glory - an extended heat wave, a momentous event

Not the usual three day stint - two extra added in, more time to agonize and lament

High pressure systems, heat-indexes pushing 100F, muggy, uncomfortable, just plain miserable, dew points over the top

These folks seem to be in competition, one more enthused than the other, keeping us abreast, with updates every 10, 15, 30

I’ve often wondered about a weather wonk’s psyche - perhaps they're just nerdy

So suffer we do, no use to complain, it’s out of our control, wait and see, it’s the mantra of the land

Now we should exult in the fact, long-range forecasts state the week

upcoming will be just grand
