Our fickle weather goes from 90 degrees to rain,
then cooler temperatures and back again.
Summer is ready to leap in, I can tell because
sometimes we our air conditioner comes on at nights.
A sure sign that coolness as we know it will soon
be a distant memory and 90 degrees will sound cool.
Thank goodness for AC available 24/7 in our lives.
I remember once when it was 116 degrees in Los Angeles.
We had no cooling system to save us only the beach
nearby with its cooling breezes brought relief.
Unfortunately there is no ocean or water nearby
where I live, only rivers that are flooding from storms.
Weather is our friend or foe depending on its whims.
I feel for those who live in the midwest where tornados
can arrive at anytime. All we fear here are earthquakes,
floods and fires. Nature is to be respected and appreciated.
