Sitting here at the craft table on Wednesday morning waiting for the heatwave that's expected to come on strong in the next couple of hours. It's forecast to last well into next week. Factor in high humidity, dry conditions, and fire season, it's no wonder these extreme SoCal warm-ups stress me out. But this monsoonal flow is being influenced by the phenomenon that is predicted to be unlike anything we have seen in about eighteen years: El Niño.
Yes, winter is coming.
There's a lot of excitement (and apprehension) in the air over the possibility of large amounts of water falling from the sky this winter — especially on the heels of our historic drought. And while I am worried about Apocalyptic-like precipitation, I'm mostly giddy with anticipation!
Before we can rejoice in rainy days and McCafe lattes, we still have to get through August, then bask in the glory that is Autumn. For now, it's back to summer...bummer.
My Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder (<--- please read that carefully before suggesting light therapy), is making it's annual appearance. Fortunately, it happening now that I am feeling more settled in at our new place — with air-conditioning. Plus, I had my anti-anxiety medication prescription filled! So I'm hoping to just chill, be creative, and continue to work towards getting two business endeavors off-the-ground by fall!
Do you have Summer S.A.D. too? Live like a vampire three months out of the year? What are some ways you deal with that orb ogre in the sky? Share in comments below!
