It's especially insane when it happens in Texas. It's not even cool enough to drink hot chocolate, not even in the early morning. If I drank a hot beverage now, I'd have to be inside where the A/C is on, and/or in front of a fan.
I had to turn on the A/C today because the high was 89 (feels like 96). That happens every time the South wind starts blowing. For the past 5 days the wind was from the North, and it was nice out. We had the windows open and it was even chilly in the mornings.
But now (for the next 7 days or so) it feels like Summer, not Winter. I can't believe anyone can get "all Christmassy" right now. Ridiculous. The big corporations want 1/4 of the year to be "Christmas season".
All they're pushing is a vapid caricature of the Catholic Christmastide anyhow. All happy, all the time. Plus a good healthy dose of "Spend, spend, spend!" It's totally meaningless.
