Wait 5 minutes..

It seems pretty much anywhere you visit, except perhaps in Aruba, the natives are famous for saying.. "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change."

But in most places, that really isn't the case at all. However, in Denmark - the saying hits the nail on the head! I have never lived or visited any other place where the weather changes so quickly. The wind is always blowing something in - sometimes good, often bad, but it just keeps coming and keeps changing. I can sit at my desk for an entire day and depending on which 5 minutes in the day you ask me about the weather, chances are my answer will change. I have seen severe thunderstorms after bright sunshine, hot, cold, hot, cold, sun, rain, sun, rain - each time you glance out the window you're in for surprise.

Check outside; weather is gorgeous! Say to myself - I really should get out and do something! What a perfect time to pluck those pesky weeds from the garden. By the time I've gone to my closet and changed into appropriate clothing and shoes, my gorgeous day has now vanished and it's raining. But if I actually go change my clothes and give up on the idea, then of course that gorgeous sunshine will be there again.

As Ole likes to say... "that guy Murphy again."
