Next weekend is Memorial Day, the unofficial start of Summer. It feels early this year, calendar-wise, but the weather in Atlanta is already into the mid-80s, so by that measure, Summer is already here.
Winters in the South are marvelous. Summers are hot, muggy, sticky and sometimes stormy. And did I mention hot? On that other hand, everywhere I’ve ever lived had something unpleasant in their normal weather pattern. In Anchorage, summers are wonderful, mostly in the 60s but sometimes the 70s, and the winters are, well, abominable. And abominably long. In Seattle, the summers are pretty good, except for that two-weeks-maybe-three where you really, really wish you had air conditioning – and you don’t. And it’s never really cold in the winter, but it is gray and wet and terribly gloomy Chicago has a cold, snowy, miserable winter, and a hot sticky summer, but the spring and fall are gorgeous. Then there’s the big stuff. In Florida, it was hurricanes. In Anchorage, earthquakes.
There’s something I miss out of every place we’ve lived. And something I don’t miss!
