My mother is watching the Weather Channel again. The Weather Channel is always on in my house along with ESPN. But if it rains, snows or is windy outside. I can forget about going anywhere if I have a place to be. If it is hot or cold out, I don’t even bother asking her. There was a chance of a thunderstorm on the last day of the writer’s conference and my mother kept me home. Nothing happened. It was another missed chance to be out. If it snows on Christmas Day, Mom won’t go to Milwaukee to see my sister and nieces. We rarely see them. I get frustrated with her weather worries. But that is my mother.
