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

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.
