Can you hear it? Way off in the far distance? It sounds like someone…whining!
It is…It’s me the Weather Wimp!
My life-partner Mary has nicknamed me The Weather Wimp. This is because 98% of the time for the last 15 years I’ve managed to stay within 65-75 degree weather all year-long. When the weather I’m experiencing gets outside of that range, I start whining!
Mary’s still at her home in the central California Sierra Mountain foothills in the colder weather while I’m hanging out in 1000 Palms, California, about 10 miles east of Palm Springs in the warmer weather. The only problem is that it’s currently too hot here!
This is a photo of yesterday morning’s sunrise as taken through the dining room window our motorhome. I had to use yesterday’s because when I published this Blog posting this morning, it was still dark at 5:30 AM. I’m an early riser.
This is a photo taken through the windshield of the motorhome right after sunset…
So, why am I now whining? Well, the average high temperature for this area in December is 72 degrees (NICE!) and yesterday it was 82 degrees with 22% humidity. Today’s forecast is a high of 85 degrees, tomorrow is 84, so I’m doing what I’m supposed to do…I’m whining!
Fortunately the temperatures are supposed to return to more like average temperatures in another 3-4 days. Then The Weather Wimp will be happy once again! As I’ve said so many times…it’s a lousy job, but somebody’s got to do it! 🙂
