Our climate is one aspect of daily living which influences us in ways in which we barely acknowledge. For instance, how many times have you put off that walk to the local park simply because it 'looks like rain'? Similarly, have you been put off from visiting roasting hot places when your holiday options are narrowed down to one specific month of the year, and you fear being fried? Also, think of the caution we exercise when driving or even walking when the roads and paths are snowy and / or icy, and the risk of accidents multiplies. The list of behavioural changes which hinge on weather conditions are endless, and part of the charm of any overseas trip is to see exactly how weather conditions can either enhance or dampen the national psyche. For the most part, I have been very lucky, and to cite an example, I recall how I cycled around greater Stockholm on a gloriously fine Easter Sunday, only to discover that snow had descended the following day, and I instantly acknowledged the weather god for his piece of mercy. Either way, weather is just one of those parts of day-to-day living which we have simply no control over at all, and this blog entry is designed to illustrate just how imagery alone can be shaped by a change in weather conditions.
