Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

(Slightly) cooler weather has reached the Tampa Bay area this week, prompting the need for warmer clothing.

I never did like the Autumn season, even while growing up in New York. And here’s why: The temperature swings during the course of the day make dressing up a real chore.

Put on something fairly weighty, like an undershirt and a long-sleeve dress shirt, and you’re set for the cool morning. But then, as the sun rises and heats everything up to the customary 80-degree range by noon, and you find yourself sweating like a dog when you step out for lunch. As the evening approaches, things get cool again.

Yes, I’m familiar with the concept of layering, along with easily-removable jackets and such. But I hate fussing with that stuff. I feel that, once I put on my clothing for the day, I should be set. I don’t want to put stuff on and take stuff off all day long — what am I, a runway model?

As much as I dislike cold weather, I’d rather it just got cold already, so we could break out the sweaters and overcoats and stick with those. It’s better than this shifty season.

  1. We don’t seem to have fall in NY anymore. It feels like summer turns into winter within a week nowadays.

  2. To resort to an overused cliche: Global warming, dude.

    Count your blessings. Down here, we’re on the verge of abandoning the idea of “Fall” and replacing it with what’s actually happening: “Hurricane Season”.
