Achieving Perfection


Today we scored with perfect weather. Perfect. For me, anyway. It's 65 degrees, sunny, high pressure, and a slight breeze. After days of low pressure, unseasonable heat*, clouds, and sometimes high winds on top of all of that, this is bliss.

I realize, however, that perfect weather is a highly subjective thing. My mother--a woman famous for wearing long underwear in Tucson, Arizona--almost certainly does not consider 65 degrees perfect, no matter how sunny it may be.

Which begs the question, my lovelies: What do you consider perfect weather?

* Apparently, 85 degrees is so hot for here that Charlie's T-ball game on Monday was almost canceled for fear the kids would suffer from the heat too much. My Arizona- and Florida-dwelling family members are no doubt rolling their eyes at that at this very moment.

I don't care so much what the temperature is (well, over 90 might be problematic), but it's the humidity that kills me. On the flip side, anything below 35 is pushing it. And, anything below -35 is sudden death. Having said all that, I have functioned in -50. Finally, we can go without sun here for weeks, which affects the mood of all citizens. I am babbling.

Actually, the 65 you describe with the breeze to, hopefully, keep the bugs at bay is great. I'd have to have warm enough clothes, however, since y'all's sun doesn't feel near as hot as here. I can definitely see your boys wilting in 85 degree weather, even Charlie. Tucson now, in the June heat before the monsoons arrive, would definitely be doubly miserable for all of y'all!

Perfect: all the characteristics you describe but with temperatures around 75 degrees. Maybe between 75 and 80. In other words, early September weather in Seattle. They get one or two days like that.

Give me San Diego. Highs in the mid 60s to upper 70s year-round.

But 85 is hot? I rolled my eyes so hard I saw my brain.

It seems that after a winter at Black Rock, I'm even more sensitive to heat than ever. So maybe 63? Yesterday was hot and humid, and I couldn't make myself go ride after wilting on my early morning walk with Sky.

Texas in the spring when it's 80-85 and sunny, before the humidity has gone crazy, but you still have a good chance of a late afternoon thunderstorm.

I'm with you. 65, minimal humidity and sunny is great. You can wear jeans and run around without sweating, it's nice to be in the sun.... Yup.
Although I am holding off on complaining about Florida right now. Yes, it's stupid humid, but the evening thunderstorms are keeping it only 85 - a massive luxury this time of year. August is coming, and we will soon all die.
