I know many of you live in areas where you keep your windows and doors open almost year-round. Many of you live in areas where you don’t need air conditioning or air purifiers. Such is not the case here in Central California. Our weather and air quality are such that we keep the windows closed most of the year and we run our air conditioners in the summer and our heaters in the winter. Unless we get storms through the valley, our winter air becomes stagnant since we sit in a giant bowl.
That said, Tuesday morning dawned cool, clear, and clean. So much so that I could open all of the windows when I got up at 6:30. Although 78 degrees in the house, the outside temperate was 64, but better than just the coolness is the cleanness. I stood under the trees when I went out to run the sprinklers, in both yards, just reveling in the cool, clear air. It felt so good. Not hot, not cold. Just right.
Is the hot weather behind us? No. Tuesday’s high will be around 95 degrees, but we are promised lower temperatures by the end of the week. Anything below 100, but higher that 78, will make me happy. I don’t want too hot or too cold, but just right. Having cool mornings sure invigorates me for the rest of the day.
