Bootless Protest

You would think that after a full year of Mid-Atlantic weather, I would be a little more comfortable with its differences from, say, the Pennsylvanian weather I had at college.

You would be wrong.

Today the temperature will reach a high of 85ºF and tomorrow? 88ºF. EIGHTY-EIGHT DEGREES, PEOPLE, DOES IT SINK IN IF I WRITE IT OUT LIKE I'M SHOUTING? No, of course it doesn't, it's unbelievable. I looked up the weather for my hometown in MI and it's slated to be 87º today, so I guess it's not that weird, but the rest of their forecast looks like the low-80s to the mid-70s. That's warm, but at least reasonable for mid-September.

At this juncture in the season, I am so sick of wearing the same clothes over and over and over again, that I'm boring and irritating myself just thinking about it. I would like to go outside and enjoy nature, but it is entirely too hot to move out there, tank top or no. WHY IS IT SO HOT?

So, wow, I'm angry about this and it's kinda dumb, I know. But I want to walk outside with long sleeves on and not instantly reach my dewpoint. I would like, occasionally, to be able to wear close-toed shoes, maybe even with socks. The fact I couldn't for the past four months, can't now, nor look to be able to for up to another month is absurd. DO YOU HEAR ME, OVERLORDS OF WEATHER? COOL IT!

I hear you loud and clear. I just check out weather report and the high today is 90!!! I mean, it is now Sept. 22nd!! I was just complaining to Josh last night about the fact that my feet are starting to hurt from wearing sandals all the time (flip flops no less!) but that it's too hot to wear any real shoes with socks!!!

I am sick of my summer wardrobe, too. Maybe October (the best month of the year) will bring us sweet relief.

Cold weather sucks... I'd rather have it a little too hot than a little too cold, or a lot too hot than a little too cold. Oh wait, that's why I live in Florida instead of Michigan now...

Bring on the sixty-five degree weather...jeans...jackets...gusty-gray days that smell like dry leaves...long walks with a pocket full of apples...

Bring on October.

In the morning it's freezing - a good 50 degrees or so. Become an early morning street vendor! Sell your wares. Sell them!
