We had some cold days in September, and it rained for 3 days straight. After the rains, it got hot and muggy again. Yordanos started asking if we could go swimming, since the cold was finished. Um. She's made several other comments to the effect that it's warm again and she expects it to go on. Um.
We've tried to explain that It Will Get Colder and It Will Stay Cold for a Very Long Time until you are So Sick of It that You'll Start Wearing a Spring Jacket on March 22 By Golly even if it's Twenty Friggin' Degrees Out.
