Last week was miserable, at least at night. We hit 0C once. Fortunately with the minisplits, gas radiant and electric blanket its not so bad. We didn't use all of them at once but I love the electric blanket. I know some people like cold when they sleep but I can't stand a cold head and nose. And no, I won't wear a hat to bed.
Saturday came and it started to warm up. Yippie! Sunday was even better and I sat out in the sun to warm my bones. Here it is Tuesday afternoon and the sky is turning black and cloudy, the air is chilled again and it is supposed to rain. Yippie!
This is Mexico. In August it is so hot the snakes and scorpions try to get in the house or the pool to cool off. The cats shed like crazy to avoid the heat and I hunkered down in the bedroom with the air conditioning on. Did I mention the fact that the water in the pool after July is so hot even the kids don't want to get wet.
So I ask, What is the deal with all the cold weather? Climate change? Mother Nature's revenge? Must be something and I wish it would stop.
I also found out today that once you retire in the U.S. and decide to go back to work, you can earn a measly $15K, after that they reduce your benefit by 1 dollar for every 2 you earn. Sounds like a socialist country to me. I guess they want everyone to join in on being poor. No thanks Uncle Sugar!
