The changing of the seasons

The temperature has dropped in the DC metro area. After months of temps in the 80s and 90s, now it's in the 60s. Sigh. I'll miss Summer. No more sun dresses and sandals. Time to get out the heavy, dark clothes and adjust to the shorter, colder days, the lack of flowers, the lack of energy. Yeech.

Last week I saw Florida cousins at a family gathering in Jersey. They were saying how'd they'd like to move north to retire as they miss the changing of the seasons. I can't relate. Not at all. Give me tropical 365 days a year. Give me a chance to get bored with the weather.

Ah, Summer, we hardly knew ye. See you next year...
