@hchavers@phendrick actually I like heat but not humidity. Lived in Philly PA and Ft Worth TX, and I’ll take TX 110 degrees and 70% humidity always over Philly 95 degrees and 90% humidity.
Plus I agree with @smigit2002: the answer is humidity and mosquitos. That is the combo of sorrow.
@2many2no@shahnm I’ve been a (nominal) adult for the majority of my life, but I still get this vague excited feeling in late spring, anticipating a summer break that my rational mind knows no longer applies to me.
Ticks. ew. Lyme disease is way up in California, and just from my work I get at least half a dozen bites. Local health department is getting tired of me showing up every few weeks with another black tick to be tested.
And there’s rattlesnakes by the barn …
fact that now that winter is just around the corner i get depressed about the cold, damp, dark and dreary, days just around the corner. about seven months of really worse than meh days just ahead… meh.
all of the above. Heat, humidity, intense sunlight, having to wear a sweatshirt in my own house because my peri-menopausal wife is dripping with perspiration. I told her once that it wasn’t the heat, it was hormonal. Once.
