So many people talk about their heavy disdain for dark, dreary mornings.
I have to say, I don’t understand.
I know I get energized, full of life, & overly optimistic whenever the sunshine is covered by thick dark clouds. That’s why, I preferentially opt to use those mornings to go out on hiking adventures by myself. I love the scenery after a heavy storm when the trees are especially dark & their leaves look brilliant in the transitional contrast. The only thing is, you have to be careful that the excruciating weather has really done before you hike too far. The other day, I forgot this cardinal rule & got myself lost in the deep woods before a major storm broke out, luckily, I happened to find high quality indoor air temperature control in a shelter. I was stomping through the woods hastily, realizing that the air felt heavy with dampness & the weather conditions was about to change. I knew I needed to find shelter, so I could stay nice and dry in the coming extreme weather event. Thank god, I stumbled right upon a broken-down looking lodge in the woods. I slipped inside & immediately felt relief from the cool, dry indoor air. It felt so nice inside of the hunting lodge compared to the hot & muggy outdoor environment. I sat down & watched as the trees swayed as the outdoor humidity culminated in a substantial thunderstorm. The storm was quite loud, I almost did not hear the central cooling plan kick into gear. Suddenly, I realized that there was a very cool, expensive artificial air passing through the air vents all around me. I heard the cooling plan working away outside. At that moment, I realized I really had a honest to goodness central cooling plan at our disposal… But clearly this wasn’t an abandoned hunting lodge.
