    Is it only the English that are obsessed with the weather?

    Or do people in other countries talk about it all time too?

    We Scots are also obsessed. (Apparently this answer is too short.)
    I think it happens anywhere the weather is changeable or dramatic. An Australian guide we had in North Queensland was totally obsessed with rain.

    Living in New England, where the weather can be really "crazy" and where it can go from 90 degree to 40 degree within hours, I've have to say talking about the weather is a pretty big thing for us too.  We're most often either complaining about it, delighting over it, preparing for it (only to have it change and render our preparations useless or unnecessary), or comparing it to other weather we, and anyone else, have had not only in recent times, but since the beginning of weather-record-keeping time.

    And when we're not doing any of those things, we're often getting over whatever weather we've had or longing for weather we'd rather be having.   smile  Sometimes, too, we'll just throw in some weather talk when there's nothing else to talk about.

    In Los Angeles, we Angelenos get psyched when it rains, its almost like a holiday.
