Ever notice how, when you ask a farmer, “So how’s the weather?” or, “Hot enough for you?” you get a very detailed answer, probably more than what you were really expecting.
Well … that’s because farming is definitely one occupation or career that’s really dependent on the weather as to preparing the soil, sowing seeds or planting slips or bulbs, how much water needs to be put into the fields and when to harvest, as well as many, many other details in between and even after harvest. In short, a farmer studies the weather carefully because it determines his very livelihood.
Guess we all can overlook the 43-minute dissertation on whether it’s going to rain today or not. Just grin and say, “Esta lloviendo!” (“It’s raining!”)
