Welcome to the Weather
I know, I’m outside in a T-shirt and shorts. If you notice I got heavy sweats and a long shelve pullover drying on the line. The wind is blowing the cotton ball clouds to the east. And while it’s a very comfortable 74°f right now; I know that in a couple of days it will be below 50°f again. So welcome to the weather in Southeast Georgia, where winter and summer clothes never really get put away.
After four days of muggy rain, it’s fortunate that we caught a break, if for a day or two. It gives me and Lisa a chance to catch up on the laundry and allow it to dry. The surrounding rivers and ponds are overflowing their banks. But hopefully the ground will be able to hold some of that moisture for the dry months ahead. Life is so hard to predict. It may stay wet cool the next few months or it may be unforgivingly hot as it has in the past.
But life is not without hope, stubbornness, and ingenuity. If evolution has taught us anything, it’s that we are a resilient creature. Our survival instincts have pushed us to moments of greater good or horrendous evil. I suppose it’s free will that gives us the power to decide which one we’ll choose. But life changing conditions aren’t meant to be pondered on such a peaceful day. Instead we should carry some morsel of gratitude for these moments of calm. So that when difficulties come, we’ll know what to do.
