starting to get hot....uh..
83F at 9:00AM.
It’s a gray day
Time to be lazy
I was already productive
I took the garbage out of the can.
Nope, haven’t replaced the liner or took the trash out yet.
Ate 2 times by nuking food.
Saturday’s are my zen days.
Sunday is chore day
Monday will be a hike
Because the sun will finally be out again
That is......I don't even have words for it.
I've never experienced anything like that in my life.
And some mornings you can literally feel the humidity wilting a starched dress shirt.
Not that I've worn one in several years.
Now that I think back.......
20 years ago I went to a conference in New Orleans. It was the first week of June.
Big conference, like 20,000 plus people.
I was staying at a hotel about 2 blocks from the conference center.
I arrived the night before and went straight from the airport to a cab with AC and right into the hotel lobby.
As I check in the lady at the desk points out where I should catch the shuttle in the morning to take me to the conference center.
Mind you at that point I am around 30 years old, trim and fit.
I thought "Why is she telling me to take a shuttle to the conference? It's 2 blocks away. I'm going to walk."
Next morning I get up, walk out the front door of the hotel at 0830 and head for the conference center.
By the time I made it 100 feet I was drenched in sweat. It was like someone had taken a steaming hot towel and wrapped me in it.
Suddenly it made sense to take the shuttle......
I have no idea how people can live in that heat and humidity.
Its forecast to be 14c and cloudy today, so very cool, but just a 3 or 4 knots of wind, so not too bad a day. Its monday 7.20am here in Adelaide.

And suddenly, it's summer here. High's in the mid-80's, New Orleans' type humidity. As always, no spring around here, right from winter to summer.
