I keep hearing Colorado calling my name.
I'm NOT ready for this. It's barely mid-June and the temps here in Dallas are already nipping at 100 degrees. And worse, the humidity is awful, too. Some say it's too hot too soon, before people have become "acclimatized". I think that's just some flowery BS to make us think it won't be that bad this summer. OK, I was born at night, but not last night. I don't buy this "varying degrees of misery" theory.
Is the weather in our part of the planet just off-the-scale screwy or is it a case of everyone having a camera phone and access to You Tube? The lead story on the news every day is tornadoes in the mid-west, mudslides, with droughts and floods at the same time. Are we just hearing more about something that's been going on forever?
All I know is if I want to do anything outside I have to be out at first light, even though you can already cut the humid air with a knife. Every afternoon this week we've had a 20% chance of rain. So far we've only been sprinkled on. Grrr! Mother Nature's a bitch, you know that? I'd rather be wet with fresh rain than sweat. Come on, rain already!
Which leads to my next dilemma. Bro will be back from vacation any day now so I can again return to "semi" retirement. Except sitting at home in my humble abode (kept so cool my nose hairs freeze) is bo-ring. What I'd give to live somewhere the daytime temps plateau at around 72. With a low cost of living (which sorta eliminates Colorado). And good Mexican food. Is that asking too much?
Maybe it's time to buy a couple of lottery tickets. If I win we're going straight from the lottery office to the airport, where we're boarding a plane for....? Help me out here. Where?
Have a great weekend. Stay cool. :)
