Very funny!

Belle Weather is very funny. I live in the south, but I think I would have found this funny no matter where I lived. Celia Rivenbark's word portraits (the realtor with Ferragamos and helmet hair, the cheerleader balancing a desire for new make-up with her concern for the poor Tsunamis and their needs, the contractor who looks like Jesus and Tom Cruise in equal measures...) and her forthright words on things like snakes and granite counter tops transcend geography.
They may not transcend age or gender. It is possible that men won't find this funny, and also that women too young to care about possums under the house will find it tedious. But that may not be true of the CD version, because the author's performance of the material is exquisite.
She has a Deep South drawl, a voice that can turn shrill when the subject warrants it, and amazing timing.
Put this in the car for yoru next road trip, even if you are heading North.
