This showed up on my iGoogle weather feed yesterday and I just had to take a screenshot:
Other weather-related observations:
-Until we moved to Provo last month, I had forgotten what weather forecasts were used for. In Tucson, if I ever checked the weather forecast, it was to see if it was going to be 105 degrees or 110 degrees. In Provo, sometimes the temperature from day to day varies as much as 15 degrees! Other variables include clouds, rain, and cool breezes.
-Sometimes, during the summer in Provo, kids have to wear pants. As in, it actually cools down at night here. Fascinating.
-As far as Ithaca goes, every single person to whom we've mentioned the fact that we're moving there tells us two things. First, it is beautiful there. Second, it is extremely cold. Without exception, everyone tells us these things. I'm not going back on my Reverse SAD argument or anything, but I do find it slightly unsettling. I'm glad to have ample warning, though, because the last thing I want to be is that clueless Arizona mom who sends her preschooler out so improperly dressed on a cold day that Miriam has to stay inside for recess time.
I also take comfort in the fact that they mention the beauty first. In other words, it's a beautiful place that also happens to be cold. Not a cold place where you can find consolation in the beauty.
In the meantime, I'm enjoying my 85 degrees. How hot is it where you are?
