Weather is like my dog

We had a ferocious storm with 70 mile an hour winds, more than 20 inches of snow, and huge snow drifts relentlessly covering the streets, driveways, sidewalks, as soon as we cleared them. The skies were gray and nasty looking and snow was everywhere. Then the day ended, and Thursday greeted us. It was bright, sunny, with glossy white snow. It was calm and clear out and the sun seemed to be smiling at us. 180 degree turnaround.

It reminded me of something.

Then I remembered...just like my dog. She can be so bad, climbing up on the counter, eating everything, and then slinking down to the mudroom, with her tail between her legs. Soon, she brightens up and tries to get me to like her again. She jumps up on me, wagging her tail, as if to say, " I am sorry. Do you still love me?"

Just like the sun!
