I find that I like to 'get creative' and play when it's sort of dreary - 
rainy, snowy, dark.  But not so much when it's bright and sunny.  Might be 
because I like to play dark and dreary things. ;)  If it's sunny I want to 
be outside doing something fun, like fishing or walking or anything but be 
in my studio.

I was watching some programs about last years tsunami and apparently the 
earthquake also caused the earth to wobble and spin faster.  Not much, a 
thousanths of a second, but it changed.  Gotta wonder what that kind of 
major event does to weather, currents, etc.
