Fact or Figment

Yesterday, late afternoon, early evening, I was working on the quilt (since husband was using the computer   Image  ) and put on the radio to get a bit of music.  At that time there is often some jazz.  The man talks too much but I sort of tune him out and just wait for the music.  Then the news came on and to finish off, the woman stated “tomorrow will be gray all over and the average temperature will be 5°.”

Now I remember how to do an average.  You take several elements and add them together and then you divide by the number of elements.  So I am wondering what elements did they use to arrive at their deduction?  The Riviera? The Pyrénées?  The Alps?  The river valleys?  The plains?  The North?  The coast?  The coast where it is touched by the Gulf Stream?  And above all, how can they know what those temperatures will be tomorrow?

I consulted husband who advised me to watch the thermometer and see.  So, when I got up at 7:30, before dawn, it was 10°.  In town at about noon, on the pharmacy’s sign, it said 10.5°.  Now it is sundown and our outdoor thermometer reads 12°. Plus it was a very nice sunny day.

How many more things do they try to put over on us?  They can’t even tell the truth about the weather???

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
