How Cool Is That [Aug. 25th, 2010|11:59 pm]
rejectomorph
Going outside today was like opening the oven to fetch dinner and feeling that wave of heat it releases. In fact the first time I went out this afternoon I suffered the brief, heat-induced delusion that I was a lasagna about to be baked. Then I felt a terrible disappointment on recalling that I would have only a can of chili beans and a salad for dinner.

As soon as the weather cools down enough that I can use the oven again without making the house intolerably hot I intend to have lasagna. I'm counting the days, and their number is three. By Saturday it should be in the mid seventies, with night dropping into the fifties. Tasty layers of cheese, pasta, and sauce will then be mine at last! In the meantime, I've still got some watermelon. But I'm so glad for the coming respite, and gladder still that summer will soon be over.

It's autumn here already. We had gorgeous weather in June and July, but it's all gone tits in August.

I could have been enjoying autumn for most of the last two months had I been able to go to San Francisco. That place hogs all of California's cool air this time of year. October days are usually pretty nice here, though. Too bad they're so short.

I feel for you. It was sweltering in Paris and Lisbon, we're so glad to be home in time for the end of winter.

I've heard that Paris can be hellish in summer, but in Lisbon you must have at least gotten some nice sea breezes and cool nights. Lisbon has the climate San Francisco would probably have if San Francisco didn't hog all of our cool air this time of year!.

Lisbon was hotter than Paris, but it was dryer. Despite being near the Atlantic it seemed to have more of a desert feel to the air. The thing was, there was a dramatic decrease in the temperature when we went to the beach, but it started at a fixed point about a 100m inland, and Lisbon is further than that from open ocean.
