‘good’, ‘poor’, ‘average’ etc. Perhaps we apply human attributes to
natural forces.  A good person; one who helps others etc. A good child;
one who is obedient, like a dog!
However, we come to expect a certain standard of
‘behaviour’ from the atmosphere that we live in at certain times of the
year.  So, when we have sixteen hours every day when the sun could be
shining, we expect that there will be more sunshine than in January,
