That's usually the word used, and it's more often than not followed by "warm" than "cold." It's all the sun's fault of course, which since the beginning of time, Man has yearned to destroy. Sadly, such efforts have slowed down over the years.
But, as Geddy Lee points out, we're "just between the ice ages anyway."
It's been a pretty stressful week/month, balancing work (the usual), home-related necessary hassles, visiting my mom in the hospital each day after work (she's in recovery mode now, an excruciating process)...all while brainstorming a new writing proposal. And this lousy New York heat and humidity really, really isn't helping. I'd like to look forward to October, arguably the coolest month of the year. It's one of our favorite months, and I'd like to avoid too many problems therein.
I hope everyone else is doing well, or at least getting by.
Right about now, Hudson Bay sure sounds pretty good. Today's temperature there is 35°. Sounds just about right to me.
