Both of you come a little further south down my way, a little closer to hell. Here you can add even more humidity to the equation. Hurry up October!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i should look on the bright side, Bike is already warmed-up when i get up in the morning

got to laugh to keep from crying.. reminds me of those song lyrics "in order to survive you got, to get a little crazy". Referring to cabin fever. it's like my "winter" hybernation.

Summer here is like Winter out east in terms of keeping you indoors much more, oppressive weather.
October - April is our great weather time. Ass backwards compared to a lot of places.

Yeah, look on the bright side i say to myself, we get the last laugh
