Here's a thread I haven't seen before;
You might be a weather geek if.....

You might be a weather geek if you have memorized all the conversions from Celsius to Fahrenheit for all the temperature ranges on earth...to the first decimal point.

You might be a weather geek if you can remember the anniversary of major weather events (famous hurricanes and blizzards as well as all-time world weather records) but you can't remember your significant other's birthday or your wedding anniversary.

You might be a weather geek if you have a separate folder just for fictional climates you created (I'm guilty of this one).

You might be a weather geek if you......(post yours next).....

You might be a weather geek if you question "Red Sky at morning sailor's warning, red sky at night, sailor's delight" as it seems backwards. Storms moving from the west would provide a red sky at night.

You might be a weather geek if you enjoy climate battles and rate the climate threads...

You might be a weather geek if you like the climate of Winnipeg, and give an F to San Diego.

You might be a weather geek if you dislike a sunshine figure of 2000 hours or above.

You might be a weather geek if you say 0C isn't cold.

You might be a weather geek if you get excited about cold fronts.

I can say more but you get the idea...subarctic climate lovers are the weather geeks.

You might be a weather geek if you made a list of every major city's hardiness zone and annual average temperature in a spreadsheet.. (something I did).

You might be a weather geek if you are hoping onto a flight to Florida in a few days during the peak of hurricane season....actually wanting a hurricane at the end of the trip.....so you can experience what is is like......(that's me; but I'm not that much of a weather geek that I'd want the weather to ruin the whole trip- a few days at Disney, a few days at the beach, one at the swamps, one at Universal, and then a hurricane for the grand finale after I've done all the sightseeing (only cat 1 though and I want to be safely inland- I'm not that brave).

The only one for me is that I have a separate folder for all climate data, including fictional climates. Not that good at the fahrenheit scale and can't remember blizzards etc.

You might be a weather geek if you have calculated your city's snowfall averages since 1991 so you can find out what your 1991-2020 snowfall average is so far.

Yes to all of those, I have a pretty photographic memory of weather events, I can also recall my first vivid weather memory (when I was 3), creating hypothetical climates etc..

I prefer to call my fake climates "hypothetical" rather than "fictional" because they are based upon placing an island onto the already existing earth and working out mathematically what the various climates would be like, rather than making up fake numbers from thin air which is unrealistic. Ideally, it would be nice to have a global climate/weather simulator of the earth, onto which I could insert the continent, and see what numbers it comes up with.

I don't think so.... I'm about as "weather geek" as it gets and I prefer subtropical climates.
