You know, I can't ever remember another time in my life when I payed such close attention to the weather. Even as an occasional gardener, I've only paid attention to general weather trends on the order of days and weeks. Since I've started scootering (and winter has arrived) I find myself checking weather.com incessantly, looking at the hour-by-hour forecast for my area, watching for breaks in the rain. It's gotten to the point that I notice when they revise the forecast and the predicted conditions change.
It's almost enough to make me want to install a wireless weather station.
