About This Quiz

The weather really is something we take for granted in our day to day lives. Like most things, if it's not doing anything weird, we don't notice it at all. No one talks about the weather until it's "too" something. Too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry. Then it's all anyone talks about. But even then it's so every day and average. It's something we all get, and we're all used to. It's when the weather goes right off the rails that we need to take notice. For all the average, everyday weather that's out there, there's a whole lot of weird stuff that can go on, too.

Under the right circumstances, the weather can completely take a left turn into the realm of the bizarre. Lightning in a snowstorm, clouds on the ground, the incredibly bizarre gustnado, there are just all sorts of phenomena that can creep up unexpectedly. Just like people, you can never really predict what the weather is going to do. And since the weather can be so varied and unpredictable, it has a lot more in common with you than you might think at first. Want to know which one of these rare weather events are just like you?
