-Have you ever wondered
-where the weather comes from?
-You know, the sunshine,
-the wind, the rain and the snow.
-Well, I'll tell you.
-In a house, on top of a hill
-in the middle of Wales...
-..at the end of a valley
-called Cwm Distaw...
-..Taid and Nain Tywydd live.
-They've lived there
-longer than anyone can remember.
-They're likely to live there
-for many years to come.
-They are Morus and Ifan's
-They're called Nain and Taid Tywydd
-because they are the weather.
-Yes, I know that sounds
-..but that's where all our weather
-From Taid and Nain's
-..in their house on top of a hill
-above Cwm Distaw.
-When Morus and Ifan visit...
-..the first thing they say is...
-.."Taid, Nain, can we help you
-make the weather today?"
-Taid always replies...
-.."Well, yes, of course!
-"But don't do a thing
-unless Nain or myself are with you."
-Into the weather kitchen they'd go.
-That's some room.
-It's full of jars,
-..pans, powders, aromas and liquids.
-And books. Hundreds of them.
-They're all about the weather.
-From floods to drought.
-From drizzle to strong winds.
-From snowstorms to the rainbow.
-Well, it was the beginning
-of the summer holidays.
-Morus and Ifan were very excited.
-They were going to
-Taid and Nain Tywydd's house.
-"What are we going to do today?"
-Morus asked Nain.
-"Well, it's such a sunny day...
-"..I'm going to make some rain
-to water the flowers.
-"Later, Taid will make a rainbow,"
-"They're so pretty.
-Taid's rainbows are beautiful.
-"Aren't they, Taid?"
-"Pass me the cloud
-that's in the large jar," said Nain.
-Ifan grabbed the biggest jar
-he could see.
-Inside the jar,
-smoke swirled around.
-"No, no, not that one - that's
-the fog," said Nain in a panic.
-"We don't want fog until September.
-I just want a summer shower.
-"The next one down."
-"This one?" asked Ifan,
-as he grabbed an even bigger jar.
-There was more swirly stuff
-"Goodness me, no," said Nain,
-"That's a whirlwind.
-"If we let that out of the jar,
-we won't know what's hit us."
-"It was meant to be a sea breeze,"
-"But my hand slipped
-when I put the wind in it.
-"Instead of adding two drops,
-I added the whole jar!"
-"This one, Nain?" asked Ifan...
-..pointing at a jar
-full of twirly-wirlies.
-"Yes," replied Nain,
-"Pass it over carefully.
-"Morus, help Taid
-while he makes his rainbow."
-As Nain opened the jar carefully...
-..and let out the tiniest
-drop of cloud...
-..which she added
-to her mixing bowl...
-..Taid and Morus poured
-red rose petals, orange peel...
-..bright yellow daffodils,
-a dark green leaf...
-..some blue sky, sunset indigo
-and violet from the garden...
-..into the jar
-and shook it all together.
-Out they went with Morus and Ifan
-to stand on top of the hill.
-A beautiful rainbow stretched from
-one side of the valley to the other.
-Taid, Nain, Morus and Ifan
-could see everyone pointing at it...
-..and saying 'whoo' and 'aahh!'
-"Now then," said Taid, "We have
-a big job to do on Saturday."
-"The summer fair is in Cwm Distaw.
-"We must make sure
-that the sun shines all day...
-"..with a gentle breeze
-sweeping in every now and then."
-"And that, my boys, is a big job,"
-""Everyone in the valley
-has been busy...
-"..setting up stalls, rides,
-a big wheel and a helter-skelter.
-"We have to play our part too."
-So, they all went into the
-weather kitchen to start the work.
-Taid wore his special goggles
-and made lots of sunshine rays.
-Nain put tonnes of fresh air
-into the oven...
-..to warm them up for the big day.
-Taid went into the weather fridge
-to fetch some huge ice cubes.
-He crunched them into small
-pieces with his rolling engine...
-..and stored them in a jug ready
-to be turned into a gentle breeze.
-Everything was going well until
-the day before the summer fair.
-Taid caught the worst flu
-you could ever imagine...
-..and he had to stay in bed.
-Soon, Nain was struck down
-with the same flu.
-Both stayed in bed
-and slept for hours.
-"There's only one thing for it,"
-..as Nain and Taid snored upstairs.
-"We'll have to do
-the weather tomorrow."
-Ifan wasn't sure about this but
-they'd been left with little choice.
-And so, they both started the work.
-But oh, dear...
-..what a mess they made.
-In a panic,
-Morus dropped the whirlwind jar...
-..as he stretched up to grab
-the fluffy white clouds.
-When Ifan was searching
-for morning dew...
-..he dropped a barrel of heavy rain.
-What a shambles.
-The whirlwind swirled wildly
-through the valley.
-It rained heavily all day.
-Every stall and ride in the fair
-fell flat on the ground.
-All the tress were uprooted.
-And the mud!
-The fairground was a sea
-of thick brown sludge.
-The people of Cwm Distaw
-Morus and Ifan were very concerned.
-"What have we done?" asked Ifan.
-"It's going to take us ages
-to sort this out and dry it all up.
-"Well, I don't think we should
-touch anything else," replied Morus.
-"We have no option but to tell
-Nain and Taid what's happened.
-"And face the consequences."
-That's what they did.
-Even though Nain and Taid
-were a little upset...
-..they accepted that the boys
-had only been trying to help.
-Having said that,
-they had to clear the mess somehow.
-Then Nain had the best idea
-she'd ever had.
-"Look!" Morus and Ifan
-could see a little box.
-There was a shiny sign on it.
-It read 'snow'.
-"What? But it's the middle
-of summer," said Ifan.
-"I know," replied Nain...
-.."But snow will hide the mess
-and make it look nice."
-So, they all took a deep breath...
-..and opened the box.
-Then, they dropped the contents
-of the box over Cwm Distaw.
-When the people of Cwm Distaw
-woke up the following day...
-..a layer of shiny white snow
-covered the valley.
-Taid had also thrown in
-some sunshine rays...
-..and so, against a backdrop
-of blue sky and shiny rays...
-..Cwm Distaw looked perfect.
-Everyone came to the summer fair
-and had the best time ever.
-They made a ski slope using the snow
-that covered the trees.
-There were sledge races
-down the hill...
-and plenty of snowmen.
-Everyone agreed that this was the
-best summer fair they'd ever had.
-Every summer since then,
-Cwm Distaw have a snow festival.
-But don't tell anyone
-or everyone will want to go there.
