Brrrr....

terracinque: (bridesmaid revisited)
It was 28 degrees (Fahrenheit) when I left the house this morning. 28 degrees! In the same week that:


  • I got a sunburn on my scalp when I forgot to wear a hat
  • It reached 84 on Sunday
  • I turned off the heat in my house
  • The dusty, musty aroma of pollen from the Bradford pear trees became pervasive


Is this reversal Old Man Winter's last gasp? Something to remember him by until next November? I'd like to think so, but I also recall the Blizzard of '93 happened in March. Of course I was living in Honolulu that year, but I heard about it secondhand. I don't want that to happen again. I want winter to be over!

My years in Hawaii made me less tolerant of winter than I already was. I think most people take a Calvinist view of the cold seasons: they believe it's a price we have to pay for spring and summer. A balancing of the equation.

But in Hawaii that equation doesn't apply. The coldest month is December, where at night it can get as low as 55 degrees.

So I know the awful secret: winter isn't necessary! And I resent it bitterly.
