“We had the air conditioning on this morning.” It was Helaine on the phone. There was disappointment in her voice. I knew what would come next. “Now I’ve got the windows open.”
We have fallen off a weather cliff!
A few minutes ago I walked across the newsroom and out to a little deck off the lunchroom. Light sprinkles are falling. It’s chilly.
Have I mentioned it’s still officially summer? We’re getting gypped!
Not everyone is as disappointed as Helaine and me. I went to Facebook and began to read my newsfeed.
Christine Palmieri: jeans sweat shirts uggs my kinda weather 🙂
Jan Basoli: Loving this cool air…. windows are open and the breeze is blowing right in……
Erin Raymond: feels like fall!
Ricky Spreyer: This is the weather I wait all year for!!
Yeah, yeah. Whatever. They probably already have their roof rakes unfurled and are praying for snow.
This all comes on the day of my last 2011 garden segment. The first frost is just around the corner. I am not good with cold and snow.
Last winter I had other concerns which took my mind off the weather. Possibly your heard about them?
This year it’s me and my Subaru fighting the drifts and counting the days.
Trust me, I will count the days!
