    the political and personal musings of two

    Lovely Weather We're Having Comment
    Gregory Morris, 10/12/07 10:09:20 am
    The only way I can really describe the weather today is in terms that are only familiar to those of us who grew up in the Appalachians.

    You know that first clear, blue-skied day of spring, when the air is still crisp, barely breezy, but it is warm enough to break out your short-sleeved shirts? You know that feeling when you wake up after that early spring evening where you could still see your breath, and the campfire was really needed to keep warm (and that additionally required just a few nips of whiskey to ward off the chill), then walk outside and realize that spring has arrived? That's what I feel like this morning.

    To me, this weather is "sitting up on top of a mountain, out in the middle of nowhere" weather. This is the weather which would normally cause me to I break out my boots, swap out the heavy layer in my modular sleeping bag, toss a bag of granola into the framepack, and start driving towards Dolly Sods. This is the weather where I would pack away my backwoods winter trout-fishing gear, and start organizing my various bass plugs, jerkbaits and jigs for some pre-spawn bass action. This is the weather that prompts you to drive down to Bluehole, and tip-toe into the water, only to realize that it is still just newly melted snow, and cold enough to turn your skin blue, but you get in anyway because you know you'll be able to sit on a warm rock and dry off afterwards.

    I guess this is what the beginning autumn in West-Central Florida feels like. Too bad there aren't any mountains here.

    HAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You're always getting to gloat during the winter and spring when the weather is nicer there than here. But it is that way here today (and really since the beginning of fall)...but we have MOUNTAINS. Jess and I and the dog are going to go hiking after I get off work.

    Oh and by the way, Ron Paul! Contender...

    Yeah, the worst part about Tampa is that you have to drive about 5 or 6 hours to get to the nearest mountains. But we do have swamps! Lots and lots of swamps.

    Speaking of Dolly Sods, mom and dad's neighbors the Allens were hiking there, when Jacob (their autistic son) got lost. They did find him, fortunately, but only after 4 days and 300 volunteers combing at 10mi2 area.

    Yeah, they kept me up to date on that. Isaac went down to help with the search. I guess he's out of the hospital and doing fine. If you talk to the Allens anytime soon, tell them I said Hi.
