I can predict the weather changes by the aches and pains in my body. Cold wet weather is moving in and man oh man can I ever tell! I always chuckled at people that said they could predict changes by the way their body feels. Now I'm one of them. I looked up how/why this happens and its quite interesting. (for those that don't know) apparently the changes in atmospheric pressure with weather systems can actually dilate blood vessels in the body which stimulates nerve endings in sensitive areas. Well, totally explains my achy knees and back! Oye, does this mean I'm getting old? 2 weeks and I'll be 34 : (


  • Hey, you are a child... :P I am 50 and have been a weather-girl for over two decades now. Not only can I tell you when it will rain, but I can tell you how long it will last, and that is generally about 10-24 hrs before I am mobile again. Welcome to the club!!
  • Traci,

    Echo, echo, echo - you're still a young pup! Almost 50 here. (G)

    Living in hurricane country, the ouchies increase tells me along with what I feel the storm track will take - whether to get out of Dodge! Other times of the year, it's a drag! Welcome to the human weather detector club!!! *Chuckle* 34...hehehe

    PCTF C4 - T2, Laminectomies C5, C6 & C7. Severe Palsy left arm/hand.
  • ditto! lol This is my last year in my 40's :(

    There is a good thread about us weather gal and guys over at:


    L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
  • I'm a walking weather Radar too. I told my Hubby the other day when the Weatherman said would rain, that it wouldn't and he laughed at me.

    I was Right though, but Boy the rain they are calling for Tomorrow morning is gonna hi hard, both in my Nerve Endings and in weather terms. ;)

    So yes we are all One of those People.

  • Thanks for sharing the biological reason for the sensation. I have always wondered. Being a meteorologist is a plus I had forgotten about. I live on the gulf coast. We can do away with the hurricane center now. I will the do the job for a lot less money.
  • Being old in inevitable, but getting some pains or hurt feeling from the body can be avoided. At your age, you are still too young to feel some pain. You must know that by consulting a doctor before its too late.
  • How about me kenny, am I too young as well... 8>
