I know I seem to be talking about the weather a lot, but, when you've recently changed from one Extreme Climate to another, the differences feel profound. This is the third time in my life that I've moved from one climate to another very different one. In the past, it's taken me two to three years to acclimate. I expected the same with this move.
Imagine my surprise to hear myself saying "It's such a nice day out" this afternoon. It was 3:30 pm and about 34 degrees Farenheit. Never in my life would I have expected myself to consider 34 degrees "nice", much less that I would be comfortable in it. But, since we've been expereincing below zero temperatures, I suppose this 30-40 degree warmer temperature should feel nice.
What I dread is going back to visit Arizona, in 110+ and baking alive! I am pleasantly suprised at how quickly we are acclimating.
