The warm weather is depressing me. It’s just been too damned warm this December. The historic average should be about 71F (22C) this time of year but it’s running about 80F (27C) instead. How can you feel “Christmasy” when it’s 80 damned degrees outside and you’re in shorts and a tee? Still got the A/C running for crying out loud.
We’ve had exactly four days where it got below 70F. Four days across two months where it was 66F (19C) and that’s it. Each time, the temps went right back up the following day too.
I keep obsessively checking the forecast hoping a fluke front will move in for the weekend but no such luck. I know to people living pretty much anywhere but Florida, an 80F Christmas sounds fun and novel but for us, we’re so exhausted of the heat, we just want a little break. This summer was brutal and it would be so nice to just have a change from it for awhile.
Well, better go take a shower and shave my legs. After all, I’ll be wearing shorts again today.
