I posted this on Facebook Thursday afternoon:
On the patio. We went to 101 today, but with 4% humidity. Down to 81, but very comfy w/little breeze and low humidity. A/C now off.
The comments started flooding back. There’d be more, but some people are bothered by all the notifications you get when you comment on my wall. I hate that too¹.

Something fun and funny about your casual weather posts.
I talk about the weather so much because of how shockingly different it is. It’s much better than I hoped for–and I knew the numbers. Granted, this was an exceptional winter.
Most easterners think of a warm climate and think Florida. It has a humidity based economy! The Los Angeles/OC/San Diego corridor is dry. Our dew point hits 60 a few times a year and then briefly.
A typical winter has no cold, no snow and little gloom. Nearly all our rain falls in winter. Rainy days in SoCal cause the same tumult as Connecticut snow days.
Low humidity and relentless sunshine are our two most obvious pluses. Top-10 Chamber of Commerce days back in New England are every days here! Sky blue. Birds chirping.
My concept of temperature has to be re-calibrated. 100° feels more like 85°.
We moved for the weather (and there’s that little thing of proximity to the child). We got what we wanted and then some.
