Theme and Word of the Day

Our theme for this meeting is something we all have in common — weather. By coincidence, our Word of the Day is also “weather”. As a noun, “weather” is the state of the atmosphere. But as a verb, it has two contradictory meanings: (1) to decay or degrade, as in “the wood was weathered by the storm”; and (2) to survive, as in “the building weathered the storm”. You have to determine the meaning from its context. Ain’t English fun?
