The weather has turned cold again. Those people who like to say, "Oh, you can always just put on more clothes. When it's hot once you're naked that's it." can just go suck it. I'll take the hot, thank you very little. When Winter approaches it's like I'm looking down a long dark tunnel towards the dim light of Spring. Like my primitive ancestors I wonder whether the Summer sun will come back again or if this tiny globe of ours will spin farther and farther away this time round freezing us all in bitter blackness.
Of course that's just my Florida upbringing and a touch of agoraphobia speaking. When I was very young we didn't have any A/C at all. Again, this was central Florida where Summer and Fall are in the 90s. I won't deny that I sometimes found the long steamy nights miserable but I would take a lifetime of those sweaty evening hours over one more minute of temps in the 20s and 30s.
If everyone will be so kind as to burn as many fossil fuels as possible from here on we should have lovely warm weather all the time in no time.
