According to the cosmology of Reya, weather is the emotional body of the Earth. Though there are general currents and flows to the weather, you know, rainy seasons, winter and summer, etc. the specifics of how these seasons and currents unfold is almost always unpredictable, similar to the complexities of human emotions.
Though we might know we're generally cheerful or moody, our own emotions can change on a dime, sometimes for no discernable reason. I believe that's why we value our rational function. It makes sense whereas our emotions are completely crazy.
As far as the emotional body of the earth, even the Farmers Almanac doesn't always get what's about to happen, even the woolly caterpillars and fluffy squirrel nests and gigantic rosehips are sometimes wrong (though the green world and non-human animal world is often closer to the mark than the smartest meteorological minds.)
Sometimes we guess right, but still it's hard to say why a certain winter is colder than others or why in one winter there will be so much snow in - say - Washington DC when my powerful and wounded city hasn't seen a real snow in years.
I know, it's El Nino out in the Pacific that's causing our crazy winter. OK. But what caused El Nino? And - how come NYC isn't part of the pattern? This is a watery planet and I know that the conditions in the oceans create large parts of the weather, but it doesn't account for everything. It's like saying you're in a bad mood because of PMS. Yes - and no. Sometimes the PMS and the resulting crankiness is better, sometimes worse.
Earth is not an even-tempered planet. She gets in moods, she does. Or maybe I could blame the weather gods for this onslaught of snow. Do you think? I know I will have plenty of time to think about it since tonight and tomorrow we are going to receive yet another foot plus of snow. I was in denial yesterday but this morning it is overcast and smells of the white stuff.
Maybe the weather gods would like cooler heads to prevail in DC, hence all the snow. I like that rationalization, oh yeah. What do you think?
