    Lots to talk about regarding the weather, but this topic also has many sign variations due to the different regions.

    There's also a lot of variation in the emphasis of weather signs, for example RAIN (slow and straight down), POURING (signed faster and "harder") & RAINING LIKE CATS AND DOGS (signed diagonally hard and puffed mouth NMM).

    Some conversation starters:

    • What's your favorite season & why?
    • What's the worse situation you've been in? What happened?
    • Where was the hottest place you've been to?
    • What's your favorite winter activity?
    • What are the natural weather patterns of the United States? (California - earthquakes, Midwest - Tornadoes, etc.)
    • If you had to choose a natural disaster to go through, what would it be?
    • Do you prefer hot or cold?
    • How much rain/snow does your hometown get annually?
