Since 90% of the time I’m outdoors on the job,
I would say the weather definitely influences me a lot.
I love the rain when I’m inside, watching and listening to it,
I hate getting soaked, even in rain gear, when out working in it.
I love the cold when I’m inside, wearing sweats by the crackling fire,
I hate shivering, frozen fingertips, and working in all that winter attire.
I love the heat and the nice people I meet,
when chillin’ and relaxin’ at the beach.
I hate feeling nauseous with the onset of heat exhaustion,
when working outside in 105-degree heat.
So as you can see, in response to your query,
Yes, the weather—in fact—does influence me.
