I dislike many, many things about Kentucky. But I fucking loathe the weather, at least in central KY.
For the last 18 years I’ve lived on a small patch of forecast oddity. It’s a natural weather front. The shape of the land and the wind currents cause the weather to shift very quickly, especially the pressure and humidity. Two or three times a year it’s drastic enough that I get sick, usually with a sinus infections.
It’s also ranked one of the worst areas for allergy sufferers.
We rarely get thunderstorms (though this year we’ve had a number), although we’re prone to rain. Not pleasant, consistent rain, but more like two weeks of rain and then a month of drought.
There is no fall here, or spring. We get maybe a week of fall temperatures and colored leaves before it’s suddenly on winter-rain and cold. Same with spring; one week of pleasantness, two of raging pressure changes and humidity, and then it’s hot for six months.
Anyhow, we just went through two weeks of heat wave culminating in a clusterfuck of torrential downpours mixed with “imminent rain that never quite falls till it’s somewhere past us”. So at the moment I’m struggling not to develop a sinus infection, nor fall asleep over a third of a bottle of cough syrup . And my AC is out. It’s just dead. Maintenance was called this morning; apparently it requires an actual H-VAC individual to show up tomorrow morning. I suppose things could be worse…. but they could certainly be better.
