I know it’s mid September, but it was down to something like 45 degrees last night – I had to close all my windows and turn the fans off. (Though I didn’t turn on the heat.) I’m not exactly sure where the summer went, but maybe here in the northeast we’ve distracted by earthquakes and torrential rain to notice. I know than many people are big fans of fall colors but this season always makes me a little sad as things start to wither and die as they give way to the cold.
I’ve always pondered living in another part of the country where it doesn’t snow and stays somewhat warm all year and to a degree, it’s somewhat beyond my comprehension. I once visited southern California in the early winter, scraping ice off my windshield in the morning on my way to the airport, then walking out of LAX to a sunny 86 degrees… it’s surreal and I’m not sure how the body calculates the passing of time when the changing seasons don’t make such a dramatic statement like they do in my part of the world.
Do you live somewhere where it’s warm all year? Or have an extended winter?
