Exciting news.

I have figured out the perfect climate for me to live in. It goes like this:

A pleasant fall, as expected in the traditional fall months. After all, one does look forward to pulling out one's boots and whatnot.

A mild winter, just enough for hats and sweaters. Maybe a coat. 

Then as the excitement of the holidays pass, and we grow weary of our winter wardrobe, the monotoniy of January threatens us;

BOOM.

Spring hits. Not just any spring, an accellerated Spring.

Not the spring that leaves you like an anxious child on the long, long road trip to summer (are we there yet?), but one that lasts just long enough for us to appriciate the passing of the seasons. The flowers, the showers. All that.

And then before you even know it. Before you have a chance to even think, when will it be summer?

It hits.

And it is long, and it is summer. With hot nights and cool water. 


So tell me, where is this?

  1. You are kinda describing the weather in California's central valley. But the summers are pretty brutal. And it's not a great place to live.

  5. Texas. For sure. Leaves don't turn until mid-December, then it's crisp and dreary - just enough for boots, hats, and a light wool coat. The coldest month is January, and February-March is cool and spring-like. From April/May to October, it's boiling.

  10. The SF bay area, but not San Francisco itself. Just far away enough from the coast to get away from the fog.

  13. so nice but as you are placing the seasons on specific months i'll have to say you're definitely not coming to the southern hemisphere!

  18. I don't know, but I'll be moving there too once it's all figured out.

  19. Is this not a description of southern California, to a tee? Suppose hot summer nights fall outside of what we do best. But cake + eating it too doesn't really happen anywhere. Hot nights = humid days.

  20. Georgia, if you can handle the humidity. It's spring here already!!
