A Quick Rant About Something I Have No Control Over

This bi-polar weather is killing me!!  My sinuses can't take much more of this back and forth.  Today is the first day of May and the high is only 68 degrees!!  I refuse to turn my heat on in May but I'm glad that I haven't put away my winter clothes and blankets.  I know that the Mississippi Delta area weather has always had a mind of it's own but it usually stayed on the side of hot to borderline miserable with the humidity ranging from sauna to where's my knife so I can walk through this air.  I mean this is supposed to be the south!  Where winter only lasts for a few short weeks and we have summer and then second summer with about a week of spring and fall thrown in just so the trees have time to change color.  But this winteresc weather when it is supposed to be turning into summer is getting a bit out of hand.  I am tired of complaining about the cold!  It is high time I was able to complain about how hot and humid it is here.  And all this coming from a person who loves cooler weather but this year I've had my fill.  I probably wouldn't mind so much about the cooler temperatures we've had this week if we hadn't just had a week of near 80 degree weather.  Cold weather has to be eased into gradually so the sudden switch is quite a shock to the system.  Someday I will find a place where it is 70 degrees, plus or minus a few degrees, year round.  Then I'll be able to find something else to complain about but as for now I think I'm done with discussing the weather.
