8.  If he’s in the house, the Weather Channel is on.

7.  He wants to buy the neighbor’s farm because he’s convinced something about it attracts more rain.

6.  He doesn’t believe those 90-day forecasts—and religiously reads every single one he can find.

5.  He has attempted to influence the weather by leaving his pickup windows down.

4.  A tornado warning is his cue to go outside and stand in the yard.

3.  His 10 o’clock news choice is based on which local meteorologist he likes the best.
