My former PM Magazine/Buffalo co-host, Susan Hunt, lives in Santa Monica. She spent the summer in Buffalo.
Susan’s a producer on House Hunters Renovations. Lots of time on-the-road.
Time to come back west.
I sense her homesickness, her desire to stay put. Susan grew up in Buffalo in a family deeply rooted in the community. She’s just experienced summer in a place where summer’s amazing. Warm, not hot. The sunniest spot in New York State.
Yes, Buffalo has sunny summers!
Because sunshine the rest of the year is a Buffalo rarity residents come out and take advantage of every moment. So, it’s been gorgeous and she’s had fun.
That other season is about to arrive. The Sun will disappear. The hours of darkness will ratchet up like interest charges on a payday loan.
Buffalo winters test you. They are relentless. Helaine and I failed.
I posted a few meteorological graphs to Susan’s Facebook page. I’m trying to make her departure easier.
The charts show median cloudiness–half the days are cloudier, half are sunnier. By November Buffalo is dimly lit. Overcast is the rule!
Susan and I have only gotten together once since my arrival in SoCal. I want to see her again. But Buffalo?
I’ve already done my time.
