Georgia’s Winters Play Catch-up

today-weather-forecast1I was originally going to title this post “Dixie’s Winters Play Catch-up” (which would go along with my recent Civil War fetish).  But I can’t really speak for all of the states in the South, only Georgia.

Have you ever noticed how winter in Georgia and the corresponding weather are always a little behind? Let’s take the cold months for example.  September still feels pretty much like August.  October and November might be cooler but it’s hit-and-miss.  Then finally in December it starts to feel like fall.  Not too cold, a little breezy, sunny and you can still ride with your car windows down (which I did earlier this week).   There may even be some years when you can wear shorts on Christmas Day…that ain’t right.

Then come late January and February and it finally starts feeling like winter. It gets pretty cold actually. But don’t get used to it because along comes March and BAM, it starts getting warm again.  We pretty much have summer from some time in April until October.  Some days you can still go swimming in late September.

I love the ol’ South. It’s a great place to live.  But lordy mercy I’d like to have some cold Christmases sometimes.
