@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 …
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.
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.
