Not all change is good

One thing that kinda bothers me is in the wintertime, when people complain about the cold. For example, sometimes it will actually snow a few days to the point where it sticks to the ground (which is somewhat rare in Tennessee). Then someone will make the comment that, “Oh, I just can’t wait for the weather to warm up. This is so horrible.”

Then around, say, the start of May, you start to hear (the same) people saying, “Oh, it’s too hot. It’s like burning up outside” when in reality the temperature is only about 80 degrees and far less hot than the 100+ degrees it will eventually reach in another month and a half. Well guess what, people — YOU GOT WHAT YOU WANTED.

As for me, I always demonstrate consistency. Even when I’m freezing to death, even though the cold may slay me, I will nonetheless praise the cold!

When the summer comes around, of course, I will obviously agree that it’s too hot. My dream has always been to move to Alaska. I think one time in high school I even wrote a poem about that dream. So anyway, I’ll definitely agree that Tennessee can have crummy whether (as illustrated by the recent flooding in Middle Tennessee). But come on…a little consistency, please! Not all change is good.

    My father is originally from Tennessee, and I am so glad he moved north. I mean, even aside from the fact that I’d not exist if he hadn’t moved north and met and married my mother. I can’t stand hot muggy weather.

    The main good thing about Tennessee is the politics, although unfortunately even conservative Tennessee has way more leftists than it might appear on the surface. I wonder if maybe Kentucky might be the place to go if I don’t work up the nerve to head all the way to Alaska.

    My father ended up in Indiana … he was always going on that Indiana’s government was socialistic, but he never left.

    In fairness to him, back in the early part of the 20th century, the government-class of Indiana was one of the more “progressive” (which is to say, socialistic) in the Union. As a child, my mother experienced some of that “progress” — she was used as a human guinea-pig (it wasn’t only the Nazis who did the things they are infamous for).
