I grew up n Texas, but my heart has always been in a colder climate. I love cold weather. I know that people will say, "Well, you've never lived in cold weather. Snow is a pain in the ass and the months of dreariness gets to you." I have lived in cold climates, but family and other forces brought me back to Texas. Otherwise, I would be living in a snowy place, trust me.
We sent L to school with shorts on this morning. Shorts on the day before Thanksgiving. It is so hard to get into the holiday spirit when you have to run the AC and put on bug spray. It's just depressing. I am so tired of being miserable all summer and then still sweating in the humidity in the "winter" months, or should I say "month". No matter how much you hate winter, you would not want this weather. It's humid, your hair always, always looks bad and summer lasts for 8 months. It's not a pleasant, Midwestern summer, either. It's omygodi'mgoingtodie summer. There are no seasons. You don't really think about it until you go somewhere that actually has a fall. Trust me, you would miss seasons.
If we were less practical, I think we would move just to escape the heat and occasional hurricane. However, I think we're stuck here for the time being. I resent it, though. Shorts on Thanksgiving is just wrong.
What about you? Do you wish you lived in a different climate?
