The Perks And Pitfalls Of Southern Weather

You've got to be a special kind of tough to handle eight months of summer weather.

The Perks And Pitfalls Of Southern Weather

The Southern United States is infamous for its lack of the traditional four seasons.

Instead, the South has Pre-Summer,


The Dying Leaves Summer,

And Christmas Fall.

Christmas Fall is the most frustrating of all, when you want to wear your jolly Christmas sweaters, but are forced to wear shorts and t-shirts instead.

While these strange weather patterns can be frustrating, they can also provide some unique out-of-season activities. For example, you can start sunbathing in February.

There are plenty of downsides to living in Southern weather, though. Maybe the worst of all is the constant need to keep shaving your legs, while women in other parts of the country get to take a break during Winter.

Full summer also takes an intense toll in the South. The deadly combination of heat and humidity is not for the faint of heart.

Residents of the South get to play Myth-Busters during the summer. Eggs really can boil on your sidewalk.

But, the heat comes with its perks. Nothing feels more fancy and luxurious than paper fans supplied for outdoor events in the Summer.

The south is a strange amalgam of weather patterns.

We can switch between hurricanes and tornadoes within a week.

But there’s also a fierce pride that comes from living in the South.

Because you’ve got to be tough to stick it out here.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
