No Wimps Allowed

You really don't know the meaning of the word "weather" until you've lived in--or better yet, are a bona fide, born-and-bred native of--a state where on one October day it is sunny and 82 degrees and you have to turn on the central air, and then four days later the windchill is 19 degrees and it is snowing. Oh, and the forecast calls for a seasonal 55 degrees again by the weekend.

I have to say I don't miss the long MN winters. But I occasionally miss snow. Especially in the horribly humid weather we've been having lately. Never mind. I won't go into how humid it's been lately because I'm sure no one will be sympathetic to nasty weather in Hawaii...

Well, I despise humidity so I'll be sympathetic (sort of). I am just hoping, and assuming, we do still have more autumn coming before winter sets in!
