I’ve been thinking a lot about the weather lately and what I say about it and I’ve decided that I need to switch gears.  I mean, part of the problem is talking about the weather is “BORING” and then you have the free world on the Celsius scale and then there’s us being obstinate by sticking with the Fahrenheit scale.  So I need to come up a different scale that anyone anywhere could understand without the aid of some on-line conversion chart or smart phone app.  Maybe something along the lines of …

  • 100F+ (38C+)  = “Back in the Box” weather
  • 80F – 100F (27C – 38C) = “Ahhhhhhh!  God loves me and sent me livable weather and some good wine” weather
  • 60F – 80F (16C – 27C) = “Golfing” weather
  • 40F – 60F (4C – 16C) = “Up yours Mother Nature. I refuse to not wear my walking shorts” weather
  • 20F – 40F (-7C – 4C) = “Now I’m miserable and wondering when we’ll have warm weather again” weather
  • Anything <20F (<-7C) = “Does it really matter what the temp is outside?  Oh My Friggen God it’s cold!!!” weather

Maybe I should copyright this scale.

  1. Probably from 90-100 degrees F it’s “who the hell cares what the temp is outside, Oh My Friggin God it’s hot!!” in my book but otherwise this is smack dab on, Jim. I say copyright it and make t-shirts!

    It’s not boring when YOU write about the weather. It is boring when I write about the weather. You must not take things personally LOL 😀 I like your weather scale by the way

  3. My take on that

    100F+ (38C+) = “Try to stay alive until you get back to Sweden”
    80F – 100F (27C – 38C) = “Keep trying to stay alive, you are almost home in summer Sweden now”
    60F – 80F (16C – 27C) = “Wait until evening, then it gets comfortable”
    40F – 60F (4C – 16C) = “Normal clothes and work weather”
    20F – 40F (-7C – 4C) = “Time to prepare for hibernating”
    Anything <20F (<-7C) = “Hibernate and don't wake up until Spring!”

    You’ve got this wrong, Jim:

    100F+ (38C+) = Don’t move! Stay in a cave or cellar where it is cool!
    80F – 100F (27C – 38C) = Ahhhhhhh! I love whoever invented AC
    60F – 80F (16C – 27C) = That’s pretty nice for a barbecue
    40F – 60F (4C – 16C) = Nice! I can wear my new fancy coat and boots
    20F – 40F (-7C – 4C) = Amiably cool winter weather
    Anything <20F (<-7C) = Finally some proper winter cold! Hope this stays for some weeks ^^
