This is Mean But ... .

With another storm going across the USA I really shouldn't be posting this but it is my answer to the two questions I am constantly asked: 1) Don't you miss the 4 seasons? 2) How can you stand the heat and humidity? My answers are always the same. As to the first not at all. I can see all the snow, sleet, ice and snowbound people I want on television or in magazines and papers. When it comes to the second question--first of all New York City and other cities get a lot more humidity plus, folks, have you heard of air-conditioning?? It is everywhere you go (except on the beaches) and besides tourists you won't see anyone else outdoors only to go in and out of restaurants, movies, an office, bank, etc. Yes we have hurricanes--1 in the past 12 years--and we have a rainy season when it remembers to rain. I haven't seen an alligator since 1979--oh yes, once when we went to the Everglades and the tourist trap boat ride but...... This week our weather has been absolutely perfect with sunny days, a cool breeze and temperatures in the lower 80s during the day and in the lower 70s at night. Just look at the pictures that I took today down at Karen Bay at the east end of the Gateway Terrace apartments where I live. Miss the 4 seasons? NO WAY!

Your second point is the issue. Bad enough I have to stay inside to stay warm in the winter, but staying inside during the summer is unthinkable.
