When it is that windy here, we always know it is a front blowing in. Having had that experience many times in Texas, it is expected. The compass on the thermometer has been spinning for days. First the wind was coming from the South, then the West, then the Northeast and finally due North. The dreaded "Due North".
It was blowing in through the closed windows, under the doors and probably through the bricks since there is not plaster on the outside north wall. Do you think adding plaster would make the house warmer?
I hoped that I was imagining the cold, but, no such luck.
When I awoke this morning, it was 25F! Holy moly. The good news was that the skies were azure blue with sunshine and NO wind. Be grateful for little blessings! By late this afternoon, the temperature had risen to 68 degrees F. Forty-three degrees.
The only way to survive this kind of weather is layering. At one point today I had four layers of clothing on.
Then as it warms up, it's take off time. You can hear it all over the streets of San Miguel, "Take it off", "Take it off". I'm just kidding. However as you do look around people are shedding as the warmth increases.
Honestly, it's a boring thing when the most exciting thing going on in your life is the weather.
That's because almost everyone I know is at the beach and it is very quiet here except for the howling winds, the "vroom, vroom" of the motorcycle shop and the barking pit bull next door.
The BEACH is sounding better and better every hour of every day.
