Weather forecast for tonight:  dark.  ~George Carlin

Watches beside me in this windy place.

In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main...

When I no longer thrill to the first snow of the season, I'll know I'm growing old.  ~Lady Bird Johnson


The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain.  This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency.  ~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons

It is best to read the weather forecast before praying for rain.  ~Mark Twain

The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches.  ~e.e. cummings


There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.  ~Alfred Wainwright


The sky was dark and gloomy, the air was damp and raw, the streets were wet and sloppy.  The smoke hung sluggishly above the chimney-tops as if it lacked the courage to rise, and the rain came slowly and doggedly down, as if it had not even the spirit to pour.  ~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers


What dreadful hot weather we have!  It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.  ~Jane Austen


What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why,
I have forgotten, and what arms have lain
Under my head till morning; but the rain
Is full of ghosts to-night, that tap and sigh
Upon the glass and listen for reply...
~Edna St. Vincent Millay


The wind shows us how close to the edge we are.  ~Joan Didion


The heavy rain beat down the tender branches of vine and jessamine, and trampled on them in its fury; and when the lightning gleamed, it showed the tearful leaves shivering and cowering together at the window, and tapping at it urgently, as if beseeching to be sheltered from the dismal night.  ~Charles Dickens, Martin Chuzzlewit, Chapter XLIII

Lo, sifted through the winds that blow,
Down comes the soft and silent snow,
White petals from the flowers that grow
In the cold atmosphere.
