Out of the Blue

Well, things are getting back to normal here after the storm. I mentioned we feel fortunate to have our power back, and reinforcing that was an update we got from our village yesterday saying that some folks may remain without power for "weeks," so we feel extra lucky to be restored (perhaps there's some reason for this, like we live on the same grid as the mayor). And just this morning we took a big step back to normalcy as the uprooted tree in front of our house was removed, so our walkway is clear once again. Oddly, this was a tree we think was planted by mistake on our curb, as we have plenty of trees, and we think it was supposed to be planted along the more barren curb across the street, so it's likely they won't even try to replace it.

I simply couldn't live in Florida permanently. I was in Montgomery, AL for 3 years and that was bad enough. When I got there and I told people I disliked (didn't bother telling them I hated it) the warmer weather, the response was generally the same. "You'll get used to it and never want to move back north." Uh, no.

I like the seasons. I like that sometimes it's cool, sometimes it's warm, sometimes it's bloody hot and sometimes it's bitterly cold. Personally I find it much easier to deal with extremely cold weather than extremely hot weather.
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
