Our fasci- nation with her began long before the written word and has continued to this day. Charts, graphs, predictions and 24-hour weather infor- mation are available but have we considered this aspect of our life when we begin to record family information in our journal? Working outdoors, Oscar considered weather an inte- gral part of his life. His journal from 1967 is titled "Weather and Daily Accounts of Happenings." The journal is a record of his work and life at a lake community. "Sept. 5 - Friday. Low 42 degrees. High 62 degrees. Clouds early and breeze. Intermittent clouds and sunny all day. Some wind at times. Good load of wood off hill 9:30-1:00. Lunch. 45 min- utes. 2-5:15 make and load fireplace wood. Change oil in '48 Jeep. Small supper and down to catch movie "Love Bug." Very good entertain- ment. Idaho Springs a real bouncing town." cinct recitation of the events of the day. The addition of the weather report gives your mind's eye a vision of Oscar cutting wood on a clear, breezy fall day. Including the weather in your journal entries brings a dimension to your activi- ties. The weather may help someone understand why you chose the activity that you did. Was it a hot, humid day and that was why you stayed indoors? Was the sunny day the reason you decided to plant your garden and ended up suffering from a severe sunburn? Expand your journal entries to include the weath- er. As Oscar understood, our relationship with Mother Nature affects the fabric of our lives.
