(note: You may need to allow pop-ups for the poll to work)
I thought I would test drive a poll that has been sitting in my drafts for that past two years. Now, on to the show.
It is a wonderfully cool 57° this morning. I have all the windows open and I am waiting for the milkman to show up with our weekly supply of milk and cheese.
I generally dislike talking about the weather. It is one of the more banal topics, usually reserved for awkward moments, ice breakers or when you’ve exhausted all other possible conversations; however, this time I use it to boast.
We lived in Las Vegas for seven years. The weather, as many know, it generally hot and dry during the summer. Here is a snapshot as of 6:09 AM:
My first thought was that it is not really that hot in Vegas today. I remember in July of 2002 the high was 116°. Then it rained. The rain did almost nothing for the temperature, but it did raise the humidity to 100%. My dad commented that it was like he back in southeast Asia during the summer.
Here is what it is like where I am:
I will say that there are really only three things I don’t miss about Las Vegas. The weather, the ads for strip clubs and rapid construction (though I think that has abated now). The people, my job, the abundance of oyster bars: all very cool.
And so it goes.
