Where would we be , without the weather to talk about ? I mean , it is a great opener for a conversation anywhere , anytime . It doesn’t matter if you are talking to a neighbour , a tourist , someone at the local mall , or even if you are touring overseas , mentioning the weather , is sure to get the conversation started . These days of weather extremes can actually get people talking quite quickly about local events .
We are constantly bombarded on the media with vision of yet another major calamity , either in our own country or another , caused by changes in weather conditions . So you can see that if you would like to open a conversation with a total stranger , but you are unsure how to go about it , may I suggest a chat about the weather may be a good bet .
