Conundrum

Pre-post warning: This may sound weird for someone who professes not to like heat.

Today, the sun is out, and it is a beautiful day. I hate it. This is why.

When I look at my window, I see a cloudless sky, and a bright sun. I think to myself, wow, it must be warm out there.

Wrong!

It's freezing balls out there. It's currently 26 degrees. Feels like 19, as in, the wind is blowing hard enough to make your eyes water in a very uncomfortable way.

I think it should be some kind of law that the sun is not allowed to appear so warm and inviting unless it's at least 40 degrees outside. Also, if it's going to be cold, it should just be cold, and not be all wishy washy about it. I'd like the ice rinks to open back up before April.

Mmmm, ice skating! I miss doing that!

I agree about the misleading sunny-ass days. I especially hate the sunny-ass days after a snowfall. It's so blindingly bright I have to squint while inside a closed room.

Seriously, am I visiting you or what? It's almost too late for end of February; maybe the beginning of March? Gimme a jangle!

I agree wholeheartedly. And I missed you terribly.

hm, being from florida, i like the sunny cold days. scarves and the sun! but bad for picnics.

then again... depends on what "cold" is. i'm thinking... bright sun... 50 degrees.

bright sun and 50 degrees sounds like perfect weather to me!
