I refuse to complain,

About the heat, cause its lame,

Not that I to the cold lay any claim,

But I said last winter I wouldn’t,

So I guess that means since some would it recall,

That about the heat complaining I shouldn’t…


In the 90’s (32.2 C) here in the good old Barrens,

What seem to it enjoy of the heat are the Herons,

Oh yes the humidity will be rising quite soon,

A little rain we could use, but please God no monsoon…


Even at night the temps don’t get below 75F (23.8C),

As long as I have A/C I find I can easily survive,

In fact for the most part I can more easily thrive,

Better than it being extremely cold and snowy,

And it is certainly much better than being cool and blowy…

I certainly like the heat better than the cold. Of course here in CO the humidity is quite low.

I'll swap you some of your sunshine for the grey clouds and rain I have here 'Down Under'. Getting towards the middle of winter here in Sydney, such a waste of beautiful beaches. Loved your take on the fickle weather Ed
