'Tis the time of year around here when the weather just gets plain old confusing, when one might run both the heat and the AC within a twenty-four hour period, might leave the house with a coat in the morning but be sweating in the afternoon. During the summer, I often don't check the forecast for weeks on end. What's the point? Ninety-plus degrees and ninety-plus humidity. Ninety-plus degrees and ninety-plus... etc. But these days, I'm checking the hour-by-hour forecast: "Okay, cold rain in the morning, then warm and clear, then windy in the evening..." It's confusing for the animals, for the plants, and for us people-critters. Oh, well. Keeps things interesting.
