I’m sure I’ll look back on this in a month or two and think “how naive”, but at the moment I don’t care. We’ve had a wet, cold 2023 so far in Socal. The weather in KY has been *much* better, on average. Today it is again 60 degrees, damp with a chilling wind blowing. A normal day in Scotland, but not Socal. So even though I feel much better today, there’s really no reason to go outside. I have a trip planned to KY in a few weeks and I’m already looking forward to the warmth and the May flowers.
There’s something about a chilly day on the Pacific coast that is much, much worse than the same conditions elsewhere. Maybe it’s humidity, but there’s a X factor about a Pacific breeze that just cuts right through you. That’s what we have today, so I’ll spend another day in front of the computer and/or the TV and/or a book. There’s this thing called the “weather tax” that accounts for Socal property being so expensive. This year, we’re not getting our money’s worth.
I *should* get back into writing the novel, but after being sick for 5+ days I’m not quite ready. I would get out and play golf, except for that whole Scottish weather thing. If I’m going to get out and play in Scottish weather, it damn well should be in Scotland.
