This is something I do constantly when I am either very cold or very hot.
No idea why - perhaps to satisfy myself that it is not me but the weather especially when I feel cold.
If the temperature is very low, I will then turn on the air conditioner as I know it is not just me!
I feel the cold badly and never used to turn on the heating till about 2 pm however nowadays I am turning it on in the morning and leaving it on all day until I go to bed!
Perhaps I am justifying turning on the heating....
haha! did i steal your answer ---that was easy this morning......no typing needed....here it is raining so hard and for so long that the rain G-ds must know I put the washing out - one of my dogs walked to the gas heater, looked at me and nudged it, so I had to turn it on! AND I looked up the temperature first and is 9 at 8.15 am
You must have been thinking of me when you asked this question !!!! I do like to know the weather, and sometimes I even check the long range forecast. It's nice to know if you will be needing an umbrella, and when it is likely to rain. At the moment, I a enjoying looking to see when the next lot of good weather will be.
The main time I tend to check the reports are when a cyclone is looming! Otherwise the weather is nearly always predictable!! The plants are a better forecast than the BoM site these days!!! Especially when we wish to know if there truly SHALL be any rain!! One tiny orchid in particular will only flower if rain is imminent!!
If I am leaving the house, as I do most days, and it looks like there could possibly be rain coming I will check the forecast. I will wear my weather proof jacket and take my umbrella if rain is expected. I didn't bother as much when I had a car but now that I walk and use public transport I don't want to be caught without an umbrella when the skies open!
In summer I try to go out on the not so hot days and stay home when intense heat is forecast.
Every day! I am addicted to the weather.
Because it's very cold overnight and in the mornings where I live, I like to be prepared and see what temperature it's going to be so I can dress the toddlers appropriately and set the timers on the air conditioners/heaters etc
I also check the forecast everyday, I need to know what to wear, take and umbrella and which overcoat, as I too walk or take public transport. Like to know the weather on weekends too in case I go to outdoor markets. Lucky I don't care about weather for washing as that is under cover in the carport.
I only look up the weather forecast, if I'm going out the next day, or if we're flying to Melbourne the following day. Then I can look at the forecast for the whole week, to see weather I'll need to take an umbrella with me or not.
