A Different Point of View

January 27, 2011

Lately, I'm sure we've all been thinking, "Why is it so cold?" or "I wish it was warmer!"

Lamenting the same chilled thoughts, I found a bit of irony in the statements from my friends from South America. You see, right now the entire southern hemisphere is having their summer season.

This means that our same "Oh it's so humid!" and "Why is it so hot out?" sentiments that we have in July and August are being expressed by our friends in the southern America right now. I've joked with them that we need a weather exchange program, but we've concluded that attempting to ship boxes of snow to a place that is averaging temperatures in the 80s and 90s would probably end up a rather soggy experience.

So, while we’re trying to bundle up, turning up the heater, and wishing for something warm to drink; just think- somewhere in the world right now, there’s someone cranking up the air conditioning, loading their drinks with ice, and wishing it was colder.

It’s a small, yet quirky, world after all.
