My old saying was –
“The coldest winter I’ve ever spent (since living in Florida) is a summer in Belgium.”
While I can’t say it’s been oppressively hot – it hasn’t been cold either …
And some moments in the midday sun you could even characterize as “Florida-like.”
But that’s losing sight of the forest from the leaves.
- Coolness is a step away into the shade,
- Night is a reliable retreat out of the daytime heat,
- And guaranteed you’ll need a “jacket” to keep warm at some point during the week.
It reminds me of the “fleece” we keep handy come winter in Florida for those bitter cold days that don’t rise above 70° F.
Maybe that means my old saying still applies, no?
