You know all the important seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer), Deer & Elk season (Fall)
You are not fazed by "Today's forecast: showers followed by rain," and "Tomorrow's forecast: rain followed by showers”
You have no concept of humidity without precipitation
You can point to at least two volcanoes, even if you cannot see through the cloud cover
Use the statement "sun break" and know what it means
A big thanks to my helpers at the NDMC: Ann Fiedler, Kelly Smith, Deborah Wood, Mark Mesarch, Soren Scott, and Meghan Sittler
