    What a delightful, fun, 'oh wow' story. The subtle humour is hilarious, and the twist at the end delicious. This story seen through the eyes of the sister, has you both cringing and smiling, all the while sympathizing with the heroine. After all, her flighty sister is determined to make a career of being a weather lady. Read this story. It's wonderful.
