The weather channel online lists the temperature in St. Petersburg as 59 degrees right now.
Today I feel the best I have in months. I walked outside and breathed in the crisp air on my way to work this morning. I'm in an excellent mood. There is no doubt in my mind that there is a connection between my exhiliration and the cooler temperatures. Too bad the 10 day forecast shows that we'll be back up near 90 later this week. I'll just have to wait patiently for the next cold front to come through. Until then...
Five Reasons Cold Weather Is Better Than Hot Weather:
5. Sleep is better
Something about cooler air in the house makes me sleep so much better. When I get too hot, I toss and turn, shoving the covers off me. When the weather drops below seventy, we open up the windows and patio door and let the temperature in the house drop. Once it gets below 70, I am in heaven. I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start my day.
Not to mention the fact that cuddling is so much better when you're chilly.
4. Lower electric bills
We keep our thermostat set at 73 at the highest. When temperatures in Florida get to over 95 degrees in the summertime, our air conditioner runs all the time. Once the weather gets cooler, we turn off the a/c and open the windows. Much cheaper. Cheaper = good.
3. It's easier to get warm than it is to cool off
Let's face it. When you're hot, you can only take off so many articles of clothing before you get arrested. When you're cold, however, you can just keep piling it on until you're nice and toasty. Not to mention, I HATE TO SWEAT. Cold weather = no sweating. 'Nuff said.
2. Pumpkin Spice lattes
I love Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks. They are so delicious. Most of the time, though, I have to settle for a Pumpkin Spice Frapuccino. I just can't handle a hot drink when it's near 90 degrees outside. It makes me sweat. I had my first Pumpkin Spice latte of the season this morning. It was amazing. I wrapped my fingers around the cup and warmed them up.
1. Cute clothes
I LOVE cold weather clothes. Long sleeved t-shirts and sweaters and scarves and fuzzy hats. Tall boots and hoodies and mittens and skirts with tights. I can't wait to pull out my cozy winter clothes. They make me feel so cute.
