Yep, it's like ingrained into our culture I guess. Not sure if you're a sports fan, but I think that is intertwined as well. Especially football.
Clemson? I thought you lived in Denver right now?

I lived in Clemson, SC for one of the longest years of my life. The only place more humid and sticky that SC is Louisiana in my experience!

Otherwise, Clemson was fine - if you like orange and purple together.

Today made me realise how much more I prefer shoveling snow than mowing lawns

life can be pretty ironic.



Got over 90 in Denver today I think. Still felt decent.

Went for a walk at lunch yesterday when it was about 95 and barely broke a sweat. Had I done that in the humidity of Dallas I would've looked like I'd jumped in a swimming pool with all my clothes on when I got back to work.

Just came in from sitting out on our patio like we do just about every evening. Temps feel great to me - in the high 80s, a snappy little wind, and a bit overcast. Of course, with all our trees and gardens, the ambiance is one of shade, flowers, tons of hydrangeas, lush green grass and dogs dogs dogs. Oh and squirrels. We just put a squirrel feeder up this evening so the squirrels should be even happier than usual. The two big mutt dogs and the squirrels seem to get along great - they keep each other (and us) entertained.

We're getting a gorgeous water feature installed in the flower beds just off the back patio tomorrow. I like that we'll be able to see it from the kitchen and the living room as well as outside. I love the sound of water bubbling. It's four feet tall and heavy and my arm is in a cast so I'm pretty useless in the way of help, so the landscape company is installing it, and moving one of my rose bushes as well. My gosh, you can't kill these rose bushes if you try, so I am pretty sure it will survive the move!

We may have some thunderstorms this evening - I sure hope so. I love me some big, summer thunderstorms.

I finally found a flag pole (well, one that you mount on the side of the house, not a vertical one in the yard) that whips around so that your flag doesn't curl or furl up on it. So far so good! That Lone Star State flag sure does look great flapping in the wind!

Right after I wrote the above, one of our beautiful thunderstorms did roll in - quick and blustery and then it left just as quickly - and the temps dropped back into the mid 70s, with low humidity and a nice breeze. Back on the patio we went! Typical June weather at the moment - pleasant mornings, hot afternoons, and once the sun goes down, it's pleasant again. Thunderstorms often spring up and then quickly dissipate in the evenings this time of year.

I always soak this gorgeousness up because July and August can be really unpleasantly hot even in the evenings (though even then the mornings are usually nice). But so far so good. I thought we were going to be in for an early heat spell but it never did materialize thank goodness.

The four seasons are so overrated. People that say they love living in it have to, and/or don’t know anything else. In Southern California your in near perfect weather year round, yet just two hours from all four seasons. That’s the way to go, you can experience it, but then leave.

I did go to school in the Midwest so I know what it’s like living through them. The fall leaves are so beautiful, but then everything looks dead for five months. The cooler temperatures are a relief after summer, but unfortunately it gets too cold too quickly.

The first snowfall, and a white Christmas are awesome, but then you have live in that crap for months. Commuting is so much fun in snow, as is shopping, and every other day to day activities. Let’s not forget about the lack of sunshine, and bone chilling temperatures.

The blooming flowers, and return of life in spring is so welcomed, unfortunately spring usually arrives late, and leaves early. The constant rain also gets old, see previous statement about snow.

Summer, the season that’s suppose to be the nicest, is probaly the worst. The heat and humidity make it unbearable to be outdoors from late morning until the evening. Drive through neighborhoods and all you hear is AC running, very few kids outside getting exercise. Let’s not forget about the mosquitoes, you almost don’t want to go outside when you finally can at night.

I’ll take going surfing in the morning, then heading to my cabin to go skiing in the afternoon, watch the snowfall in the evening, and return home to sunshine and 70’s the next day. And while not as impressive, it’s still beautiful in the fall for the leaves.

Yep. That's what I remember about Denver.
