Discussing the weather is a popular conversation starter. Whether you’re in a conference call or with a stranger in an elevator, bringing up the weather is a safe topic. Everyone’s got an experience and an opinion about the weather.
Perhaps we’re even more obsessed with the weather today because in the age of algorithms it’s the one thing that we can’t really control. But we can sure talk about it!
The weather is what it is. We can control how we prepare for it, in the way we dress and travel to a destination. But we can’t safeguard against its fickleness and destructive powers.
The weather makes the rules. We’re just living in it and playing off the commonality.
