why did we use Drawable drawable=getResources().getDrawable(mcurrentWeather.getIconId());

we could have used mImageIconView.setImageResource(mCurrentWeather.getIconId()); this method accepts int resid, why dis we opt for Drawable?? any specific reason. And since we are in the context now, why are we even using getResources() ???
