Morning Start: Chance of afternoon thunder in the Interior

Your morning start for Thursday, May 14, 2020

Today’s forecast for the Okanagan and Shuswap has a bit of everything, starting with some sun and cloud, a 40 per cent chance of showers and possibly some thunderstorms late this afternoon.

Fun Fact of the day: the good and the bad

Psychologically speaking, how many good experiences does it take to outweigh a bad one? When researchers John Gottman and Robert Levenson sought an answer to this question, they discovered a 5:1 ratio.

Unfortunately, that means five good experiences are roughly counterbalanced by a single negative emotion, but it’s a good reminder to focus on the good things, however small.

Gottman seemed to want to help people overcome this somewhat cruel ratio, having spent four decades working clinically on divorce prediction and marital stability.
