Hellloooo...it's me, the big whiner.

This post is going to make a few of you want to reach out in cyperspace and pinch my head right off my shoulders and I completely understand. I used to live in the land of blowing snow, cold feet and no sign of spring for months so I understand your frustration. Really, I do but hear me out. When we moved South over 10 years ago I was all excited to be away from frozen pipes and high heat bills but it only took a year to two for me to figure out that all I had done was trade high heat bills for HIGHER air conditioning bills and blisters when you touch a black steering wheel in July. I have never claimed to be bright and give me some credit because like I said...I did eventually figure it out. So here it is, the middle of December and I had to turn the AC on this evening. The temperature was only in the mid 70's but good gracious almighty the humidity had to be at least 1,000%. Poor Morty was on his belly, splayed out on the tile floor and BEGGING me to turn on the air. His eyes were saying, "Good Lord woman...do ya see this fur coat I'm wearin' here??? TURN ON THE AC!" Don't get me wrong as I know if I were still living in the frozen North I would be complaining about that too and I guess the old saying really is true. It does get mighty warm in these parts but at least you don't have to shovel heat.

I'm cold natured-but I'd still take the cold before the heat! Can't believe it was so warm-been unusally warm here today too.

I know exactly what you mean.
I had the back door and window opened today(after the flooding rain, which I am happy about-- rain).
We do shovel a lot of umm...stuff around the farm, but no heat.lol..
If it gets below 70 degrees though, I am hunting my jacket.
Have a great day.

I know how you feel, I overdressed the other day when I was shoveling snow, I got so hot I thought I might have to turn on my AC when I came in the house. I don't feel a bit sorry for you missy.
