Such a Tease

I walked out of the house yesterday, and suddenly felt that I could breathe again. A wonderful cool breeze played across my skin, and I stopped in my tracks, afraid to disturb it.
The weather has been so hot lately. The highs have been in the 90s, but the heat indeces have been well above 100. It’s the kind of heat that you could almost swim through, thanks to the stifling humidity. Simply walking from your car to the door is enough to make you break a sweat. It’s not abnormal for this time of year, but that doesn’t make it any less hot.
But when Tropical Storm (or was it a depression by then?) Henri blew through, so did cooler temperatures. Right now, it’s 68 and it feels like heaven. I’m trying to soak in as much of the cool air as I can, because I know there are more 90s coming before we cool off for good. But in the meantime, I’m drinking coffee, thinking about Halloween and turtle-neck sweaters, and looking forward to a new season.
