@tinamarie1974 I remember St. Louis being the worst of both worlds. F’ing freezing in the winter, too F’ing hot in the summer.
At least when I was in International Falls the summers were cool to make up for the frigid winters, and down here the winters are mild to compensate for the hot/humid summers.
I used to look forward to spring: end of winter and having to worry about water pipes and broken branches; end of dead grass (until August’s drought, anyway); bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes along the highways and byways, the general renewal of life.
March madness and the rustlings of baseball.
The time change was the twinge of pain. But this year, renewal of life is getting off the ventilator, out of the hospital alive, so a big meh to Spring, two oh two oh!
