It has been pretty warm as of late.
Granted, we’re not seeing blazing heat or extremely high humidity, but it has been warm nonetheless.
Now, I like nice weather days with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.
What I don’t like is hot temperatures.
I avoid them like the plague.
I am so thankful for air conditioning as me and heat are like oil and water.
You see, the thing about heat (especially when combined with humidity) is it can get very uncomfortable very quickly.
I used to have to work in Florida heat and humidity day in and day out…wearing slacks and a shirt and tie.
And it was awful.
I was drenched in sweat most of the time, and every day I had to bring an extra set of clothes to change into to shoot any video in which I was seen.
It was not fun to say the least.
The problem with high temperatures is that you can get down to just a pair of shorts and a tank top…and you still feel miserable.
You still sweat.
You still feel overheated.
You just feel oppressed beneath crushing heat.
And there is no escape other than a pool or a lake or an air-conditioned building or car.
This is why I like cold air much more.
To me, it is much more tolerable.
Extreme cold never seems so daunting to deal with as does extreme heat.
When it is cold out, you can keep adding layers until you’re warm.
You just can’t do the opposite in heat.
Which is why I try to stay out of it.
Give me some chilly weather, and I am a happy camper…especially if it’s accompanied by snow.
