Even As Late As the Last Weekend …

… we had, with 80 degrees Fahrenheit, (nearly) summerlik etemperatures down here in southern Texas and on Saturday nigh we even had the AC running in our bedroom, but for the last two days it has become cooler, nearly down to freezing at night. During the days it sure gets warmer, as today, e.g., with a bright sun shining from a cloudless blue sky. And for the next few days it’ll warm up again, before we’ll have the next wave of cold arctic air flow down from Canada.

  1. I rarely use heating or cooling here in La Mesa. The temperature inside flucturates between 80 and 65 depending on the weather and whether or not I have the windows open.

    • Hi Russel,
      Well, you know that here in south central Texas it’s not only the heat by itself, but also the humidity that makes the temperatures less bearable. And, in addition to that, it’s our age. We like to pamper ourselves more with each year. 😉 Mary tells me that her parents never had AC. This old house, built in 1938, simply relied – and relies – on the big windows and the ceiling fans. It’s only in recent years that we have installed sone window units. But should we be able to go ahead with our plans of renovating the existing house and adding another room, we’ll certainly go for central AC for all of it.
      A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you,
      Pit

    • Hi Sammy,
      wenn das denn nur so einfach wäre. Ich würde ganz gerne etwas Temperaturen tauschen. Hier läuft nämlich noch jetzt, um 19:00 Uhr am 19. Dezember! die Klimaanlage!
      Liebe Grüße aus dem viel zu warmen südlichen Texas,
      Pit

  4. Stop taunting us! It’s been snowing for days here🙂

    • Hi Sam,
      Thanks for taking your time to stop by my blog and leaving a comment. I’m keeping track of the situation in Germany and thus know how much snow you’ve got recently. I think it’s double sided for me: when I was living in Germany and had to commute for ca. 45 minutes to my work by car, snow often annoyed me. And after a short while it usually was no more a “weiße Pracht” as we sometimes call it, but just some dirty slush. But here, where we have snow only absolutely rarely, I do miss it.
      Best regards, and hope to see you here again,
      Pit
      P.S.: and stay warm

  5. Nice to read from you again!🙂
    This is amazing, sounds like Florida. So what is the coldest you have during the wintertime, I wonder.
    Have a lovely tome.
    I’m off to Hillesheim in the Eifel now,
    going to

    with Doris, Klausbernds sister. And the bookfayries, of course!🙂
    Take care.
    Love

    • Hi Dina,
      The coldest we have down here during wintertime? It can go down to around 15 Fahrenheit [= ca. -9 Celsius], but that for a night or two only. We might have a week or so of days and nights with a slight freeze, but that’s about all. Other than that we quite frequently have quite a cold wind, and in our old draughty house without either insulation or heating [we have only our open fireplace in the living-room plus some electrical heaters] that can really chill you to the bone. But luckily that’s never for long. Let’s wait and see what’ll be happening this winter. Btw, we’ll be in Denver, visiting with Mary’s cousin Jo Ann, for Christmas and New Year(‘s Eve). There it’ll really be cold, very likely, plus we’ll have some snow – maybe even quite abit.
      Have a great weekend, and my regards to the bookfayries, too,
      Pit

I'd really love to hear from y'alls!
