Just think, a month ago we were driving around in sub-zero temperatures.
But, it could have been worse…
When we were in New York it was a range between 4 degrees and minus six degrees Fahrenheit.
A week later, after we left, those temperatures dropped to minus fifty, not necessarily in New York but in other places quite near, like Chicago.
Wow, did we get out of dodge at the right time?
Now, having been back for a month, what was a welcome relief from the freezing cold has become a monotonous heat wave, where to venture out in the endless heat and, worse, humidity is more than a chore.
Dare I say it but the air conditioning is going night and day, and the only saving grace is the fact we have solar power, and that endless sunshine works for us.
In a manner of speaking.
I’m now on a quest for a place that is more temperate to visit, you know, not too hot, not too cold, but does such a place exist?
Have we managed through global warming to destroy anything that could be described as paradise?
Is there such a thing as global warming?
Have we been on this planet long enough, with the science to prove it, that what’s apparently happening now, hasn’t happened before at one time or another?
I have no doubt paradise exists somewhere, but why would you tell anyone about it? Once everyone does, it ceases to be paradise.
So much for that quest.
Perhaps I should be grateful we have air conditioning.
And next year try to find somewhere less cold to visit.
