A conversation I just had with the Eagle didn't make any sense to me while he kept insisting he was right. I didn't bothering asking him to explain it to me for a number of reasons, but mainly because he has a habit of being completely obtuse and insisting he is being very clear. Usually, I got look up what it is, understand it that way, then try to interpret what he said to figure out if that's what he really meant. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.
A quick search didn't reveal for what I was looking, so I thought I'd ask here. Could someone please explain to me how storms work?
I told the Eagle to look out the northwest corner of our house because the sky was very dark. He mentioned that storms head southeast and that this one had already passed us.
I said, "But you're looking out the northwest corner of our house! If it was past us, it would be in the southeast corner of our house." "Right," says he, "but the sky isn't dark in the northwest corner."
"Did you not just look out that window?!" Then he got that look on his face like I just wasn't understanding and was being an idiot. "Yes, but there was clear sky behind that*, so it has passed us."
I don't get it!
*He showed me with his hands, so if we were looking at the northwest sky from left to right it would go clear, dark, clear (we're in this clear part). How on Earth is the storm past us if it is still northwest of our house?
