Scots, talk a lot about the weather. This is hardly surprising – as the hoary old joke so accurately says “If you don’t like the weather in Scotland, wait half an hour and it will change”. On a “dreich” (wet, dismal) day there may not be a blink of sun and on others it may be “mochie” (warm and damp) and on still others a “simmer cowt” (a heat haze). ref: http://www.rampantscotland.com/parliamo/blparli...
