Not Happy With The Heat

The older I get, the less I find I enjoy the heat.

The summers, at least in my neck of the woods, have become less and less pleasant the longer I have lived here.  90 + degrees with with 70-80% is not pleasing to me - not so much because of the aspect of daily having to work in it (I do not) but because I really do not want to do anything in it:  run in it, walk in it, do anything in it.

Which is a bit of a problem.  Especially if you actually need to be doing things outside to further your life goals and simply to be in better physical shape.  (Not to mention the practical aspects of trying to build a semi-self reliant lifestyle on less than ideal water).

Montana was a game changer, simply because I have not been out of this summer weather in some time.  Yes, it got warm in the day - but no humidity and it pleasantly cooled down to the mid-40's at night.

(Yes, I realize it gets cold there in winter).

Short term, not really sure how much I can do about it.  Certainly not really in the position at the moment to relocate to a cooler clime.  But this is having implications on my longer term plans.  And that cannot really be allowed to stand.

Easier to stay warmer than it is to stay cooler.  It really is.
