December 10, 2009: Weather Sonata

As a devotee of Macintosh computers and an Apple stockholder, I was proud to be an early iPhone owner.

Now, though iPhone users are legion, and available features multitudinous, my gadget's weather-checking capability, especially in the winter, is still my favorite. The quick tour of locations I view, and the order in which I view them has the structure of a daily short musical piece. 

I start with Winterset, providing the steady note of a small Midwestern town (-6˚ today), then introduce a big-city theme by sliding over to Chicago where two of my three daughters live. The music includes the sophistication of Millennium Park and the Field Museum, but the weather is pretty much the same (2˚ today).

Next comes exotic New York City where my oldest daughter lives. Skyscrapers, fashion, and Rockefeller Center pick up the pace with better, warmer, winter weather (39˚ today)! To introduce a light, ironic note, I slide next to Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, where my daughter's husband is in Army Reserve training (sunny and 60˚!).

Bringing back the snowy, Midwestern theme, I check Washington Island, Wisconsin, the location of our vacation home (10˚ today), another rural setting, but with the grandeur of vast Lake Michigan lapping the beach of our property.

To end my little weather symphonette, currently I slide to one more screen, Washington DC, where my daughter Mary is performing in "Too Much Light. . ." this month at the Woolly Mammoth Theater. It's 43˚ and mostly sunny today.

Today's Fortune Cookie Fortune:
You will entertain yourself.
