The rain brought gorgeous cool weather--put on an extra shirt weather, get out a blanket weather--of the sort that used to have Floridians who could afford it flocking to the mountains in pre-a/c days. It was glorious.

And after Sunday's day long rain and overcast skies, when the sun eventually appeared, arrowing through the trees, it seemed like a revelation. Green was somehow greener, the sky bluer, and the mountains of cumulus clouds whiter. 

That's another reason for not having a/c--as long as the hot days don't go on too long, they make us appreciate the cool days all the more.

Contrast is one of the reasons we left Florida--four distinct seasons seemed like a good idea. I hear that Hawaii is in the 70s year-round-- which is admittedly a perfect temperature--but I kinda think it would become boring.

I know, I know--I sound like someone who might hit her head against a wall because of how good it would feel to stop. But still . . .I love the contrasts.

I do like the 4 seasons although one is much too long and one — autumn — is much too short.

I don't like winter, but I do love spring and summer.

We don't have AC either and of late temps are dropping into 40s and 50s at night that the cotton blanket on the bed gets pulled up.
