Moving back home, and a blurb about climates

May 9, 2008

We’re going to be moving back home on Sunday, and I will be discontinuing my internet service here as of today May 9, 2008, so we won’t be able to get to our blog for the next couple of days.

Anyone leaving comments, poetry challenges, etcetera….don’t be alarmed if you don’t see them posted for a couple of days. We’ll be back to blogging and moderating comments in a few days.

In case people are wondering, we’re currently in Florida, and we will be moving back to Maryland. The weather is generally MUCH better up there…….not nearly so hot and humid. Hot in the summer, yes, but not nearly as humid for so many days in a row. Down here, it’s pretty much hot and humid from April to October. That gets old pretty quickly. Where my parents live in Maryland (and where we grew up), it can get pretty steamy (hot and very humid) on occasion in the summer, but the duration of heat plus high humidity is measured in terms of a few days if that, rather than weeks and months at a time. And when it rains like crazy up in Maryland, the air is generally much cooler and drier, for much longer than it is down in South Florida. Here, the air heats right up again and the humidity returns, a mere couple of hours (or up to 3-4 hours) after a hefty downpour.

That’s the difference between a tropical climate (down here) and a more temperate climate (up in Maryland.)

In South Florida, the air can hold much more moisture before draining it in monsoon fashion, than in Maryland. And that moisture is replaced much faster because of the South Floridian tropical climate.

(Gee, if we’re into meteorology we better look this up to see if it’s actually correct when we get back home to an internet connection)

I didn’t begin this post with the exact intention of writing about climates, that just sort of happened. Very occasionally I am fluent in extemporaneous writing.

We’ll see you all later, on our blog

Have a great weekend, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who read our blog, and anyone else who may come upon this little written world for the first time, who is a mom.

PS: this goes without saying, but moving is a HUGE pain in the behind……I’m sure our cat will think in pretty much the same way.



  1. Good luck with the move. Take care.

  2. thanks….we’re pretty much settled now……..we have to put more things away though, and get into a rhythm of actually doing something productive.
