January 25, 2014: Pop outside and check the skies — it’s Observe the Weather Day. So whether it’s raining cats and dogs up north or the dog days of summer down in the southern hemisphere (or doing both on the same day, which is the true mind-trip for me), be sure to check out what your local climate has to offer. And since it’s Opposite Day, be sure to frown at the sun and cheer on the rain, like this little fellow. He’s also the centerpiece of National Irish Coffee Day, which also occurs on March 17 (but really, sharing St. Patrick’s Day is silly, since it’s National Irish Everything Day). Let’s add Irish Coffee to the list of things I’ve never consumed, because while I’m OK with the cream, sugar, and whiskey involved, the coffee will forever keep me away. Plus, all that whipped cream on top. Bleah.
