The first cold front just came through Miami recently and don’t laugh, it’s exhilarating for me because of the clear, clean feeling! Hearing, smelling, and breathing outside fresh air calms me down and I can sleep and breathe better. There is so much more clarity and vividness with cooler air.
Ready for Outdoor Time
While people in cooler climates are packing up their lawn furniture, closing their pools, and covering their BBQ’s we are ready for outdoor time. Bugs are gone; we need to check and prepare our plants, landscaping, outdoor furniture, fire pits, relaxing areas in our yards, patios, and balconies.
I recognize that humidity is good for our skin, joints, muscles and perhaps more, but it really makes the outside seem muddled and a bit foggy. We can’t even crack open our windows for months because of the extreme humidity and heat. We have a need for our air conditioners to be running as efficiently as possible with no air escaping or humidity coming in for us to remain comfortable for months.
I know you may think- stop complaining ! Many people welcome and love this heat constantly. I view this scenario as similar to the winter when much of life is inside for a few months. I remember growing up in the north east during winter with the heat on, the windows closed, and cars heated up before entering and bundling up for months until spring air allows the windows to be opened once again.
Enjoy this time of year
Yes there are summer activities that cool you off and there are amazing winter activities that thrive and thrill with cold air. My message is to just enjoy this time of year, be prepared wherever you are and be present so you can enjoy these seasonal moments .
Breathe deep Miami, get outside, open the windows and clear the air in your homes!
