I am not a hot-weather fan. Most of you have probably heard me say that after growing up in the heat and humidity of St. Louis, I announced that I would only go to college in either Wisconsin or Minnesota. I headed north and never looked back.
You’d think that for such a weather wimp that I would have invested in central air at some point. Nope. Or that at the first sign of summer I would install my bedroom window unit to get some cooler air. Nope. Normally it takes three or four days of over 90 degrees in a row to get me to deal with the air conditioner and this summer all our 90+ days were spread out.
So it seems particularly unfair to me to have such a hot weekend towards the end of September. Right now it’s getting dark and I’m sitting in my bedroom with three fans going: ceiling fan, oscillating fan on the floor and a box fan pointed right at me. I will admit that if my window unit were installed, I would have turned it on tonight, but I can’t bring myself to get it out of the closet and install it for one night.
I do realize that there are quite a few spots in the world whose weather has been undeniably worse than ours the last month but thinking of it hasn’t made my mood any better or my room any cooler. Guess I’ll just sit here and pout some more.
What about you? Hot or cold?
