Surely this is among the most primeval of feelings...the feeling of happiness -- the happiness of watching weather when you yourself are not out in it.
Since the beginnings of time, our ancestors probably sat in caves, in primitive shelters or under a thick canopy of mighty trees, thinking the equivilent of "boy, it's really coming down out there. How nice to be dry and warm down/in/under here."
Nothing like being safely sheltered, preferably under a blanket or in front of a fire, when the weather finally arrives. Perhaps our first and deepest happiness, as human beings.
