It’s taken me some time but eventually all that heavy thinking in the sun has paid off.
I’ve just realised that when the weather forecast says that it will be “fine” it doesn’t mean what the rest of the world thinks it means.
To a weather forecaster, “fine” does not mean “fine” as in good weather, it simply means the absence of rain.
The only time we can have the slightest confidence that the weather will be good is when the forecaster actually says “sunny” or “blue skies”.
“Fine” simply means that the sky will probably be overcast and grey and that it is unlikely to rain – though there may be light drizzle.
Don’t you wish that language could be relied upon…….
