Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, December 26, 2020

Thanks to a freak high-wind system that blew through this morning, plus a seemingly-impenetrable cloud cover that’s let in zero sunshine over the past couple of days, the current temperature in the Tampa Bay area is 50 degrees.

Fifty goddamned degrees. And set to drop another 10 degrees tonight.

I don’t care that such temperatures would be cheerfully welcomed as balmy in snow-covered points north of here. That’s their problem.

I’m used to the thermometer showing 70, 80 and 90 degrees on a regular basis, with loads of sunshine accompanying. And that’s what I want to see again, the sooner the better. If nothing else, something other than grey on the horizon would serve to brighten my mood. I’ve had enough of this crap weather for one season, thanks. Bring on the subtropics.

UPDATE: Bitch, and ye shall receive. Less than 15 minutes after ranting, there was a break in the clouds, and blue sky and sun came pouring through. I was able to turn off the lamps, even! It’s not bound to last, but I’m thankful for even this.
