Molly with the letter WThe end is so close I can taste it. And it’s a good thing because as much fun as I’ve had with these contronyms, I’m plum tuckered out.

Weather - To discolor, disintegrate, wear, or otherwise affect adversely by exposure; to show the effects of exposure to the elements
 
~ or ~
 
Weather - To come through (something) safely; to withstand the effects of weather
