Summer-------put on short sleeve dress shirt, shoes,socks, dress pants-----and I'm off driving down the road


( and we aren't even in winter yet )

That's my beef - the clothing - its a hassle but necessary. You run to pick up something you need at a minimum boots, a coat, gloves and you should always have extras. Add kids into the mix and its just a pain.

Nobody will ever know what I was wearing, or not wearing, under that coat.
If you went back to bed after getting the milk, then you clearly didn't need the milk right away.

Days like that are precious few during summer here. Nothing is a bigger relief to me than a day that's only 80 after weeks of mid 90s+. Unfortunately that rarely happens.

I like it! I always think, You can add more layers when it's cold but you can only take so many off when it's hot.

I hope this record breaking heat in Texas overwhelms winter

I find tropical landscapes to be much more attractive, temperate landscapes tend to be monotonous, bare, and boring (imho)...

You need to spend some vacation to visit El Yunque in Puerto Rico or Hilo, HI. Both places have rainforests (although the NPS says El Yunque is the only tropical rainforest in the U.S.)

Each to their own, but I think snow makes everything look better. .
