You might be an asperger if you're obsessed with sunrise/sunset/daylength/solar noon times by a second.

for me : knowing the airmass that affect climates all around the world, have a strong will to buy a weather station and upload it to wunderground, knowing that 75.f (24.c) can be mean from freezing to sweltering, more fluent in c/f conversion, and start bored with the lowland tropics and have a strong will to experience cold/snow/dry heat

...you're excited to receive a NOAA Wx alert radio for your 15th birthday.
...you're known as the "amateur meteorologist" at your workplace.
...you feel a warm up-welling of excitement when the possibility of severe T'storms and/or tornadoes is in the forecast.
...you spend an hour or more googling random places just to read about their climates.
...you jump for joy and run out like a 10 year old whenever it begins to snow (this last one is because it usually only snows once or twice a year, and usually within a small window of the [winter] season).

You might be a weather geek if you register Wikipedia only for editing the "climate" section and making fictional climate weather boxes and place it in your wiki sandbox.

-You long for 'exciting' weather such as hail or a dust storm.
-You look up how many hours of sunshine the day had.
-You look up nearly every city's climate in the world on Wikipedia.
-You get offended when people hate your city's climate.
-You check the weather all day long on every source when going through a day of extreme

You might be a weather geek if you use Wikipedia to edit the weather sandbox, and get sidetracked by climate when researching a city. (Guilty of this)

You might be a weather geek when you know that London isn't that rainy.

You check to see if today's climate is warmer or cooler than the cities average (warmer for me)

You joined city-data solely for the weather thread, and use it mostly. (guilty)

You know exactly where the closest equivalent to your ideal climate is (The drier parts of New Zealand)

Haha, have done that many times! And then when you break some kind of record you actually feel "proud" as if the achievement actually had anything to do with you!

You might be a weather geek if when somebody posts a question on here like "What's the earliest/latest date you've reached x degrees?" or "What's the earliest/latest date you've seen lying snow?" you can just post your answer straight away since you spend so much time looking through the weather records that you already know it's right without needing to bother looking it up or checking it.
