I am editing my dream climate, too. I recently changed everything about it. Not 100% happy yet.

This is me, my dream climate was originally based off of Orlando, now it's almost perfectly matched with Dallas, which is wierd since never looked at the climate of Dallas when editing my climate.

You might be a weather geek if you get sidetracked to the "climate" section of the Wikipedia page when you are researching a city for an assignment.

... you wake up in the middle of the night due to the wind and rush to turn on your computer to find out how strong the wind gusts, temps and pressure are.

... the first page you normally open in your browser and the last you close is the local Met Institute (or similar) page for your city.

You might be a weather geek if you have a mini weather station.

I've got up in the night to check the computer to see if we had lightning after hearing what turned out to be a heavy truck driving down the road outside.

You might be a weather geek if you deliberately don't talk about weather in real life because you know you'll just end up going into way too much detail and get blank looks as if you're crazy.

I never talk about my weather hobby to people at work etc... or even family much because as soon as I open my mouth about it I see their eyes glaze over and they're thinking "oh not again".

Yup. I do that if it's a cold night - if I wake up at 2am, I'll go on the computer and see how low the temp is. I might end up getting annoyed if it's only moved 2C in 5 hours.
