Explanation:
Una idea.

Posible interpretación:El mensaje es que cuando está dull el tiempo simplemente no acompaña, pero puede empeorar (sobre todo si llueve) y entonces va a ser todo un problema ocupar a los niños, ya que hay que descartar toda actividad al aire libre.

O podría ser tb que el "desastroso" se refiere al efecto sobre los cultivos (granizo)...
