I wish there was a way to count the number of times a day I either say out loud, or think in my head, "I can't wait for summer." Or when it's actually here, "I love summer." It is hands down my favorite season. By a land slide. Living in Portland has only intensified my love for sun and warmth as well. (This won't be my permanent residence, I can assure you of that). I could list reasons for days why summer is the best, but instead I would like to share with you my perfect seasons/weather calendar that I recently shared with my Dad. Here you go:
Summer: March - September. 75-80 degrees. Maybe a few random days of rain thrown in. But those are only allowed in March or April.
Fall: October - November. Brisk and sunny mornings (and by "brisk" I mean 50-60 degrees). A scarf and a light jacket would suffice. Moderate afternoons (65).
Winter: December - January. And by "winter" I mean in the 50's so that you can get in a couple months worth of wearing cute winter clothes - boots, scarves, coats, tights, layers. There can be some days of rain and clouds allowed (not to exceed a total of 4 weeks total), and one day of snow and that's on Christmas. Otherwise the sun is still mostly there, just a little chillier.
Spring: February. Spring is my least favorite season. So February can be the one month transition from 50s/60s to 70s and I guess more flowers and trees can bloom.
Find me this land and I will move there. Oh wait, I think I already know such a place where this type of heaven exists...
What's your favorite season? And does the weather affect where you choose to live?
