Last Sunday I actually observed someone sunbathing. Even though the average high temperature in Colorado City for January is 50 degrees; on Sunday we were in the 70s as much of Colorado set records for historic high temperatures.

Tuesday, 48 hours later, the high for the day was 18 degrees and the low was below zero. The average low in January is 22 degrees in Colorado City. Weather is one of those things that eludes any control by humanity.

February, if it follows normal trends will sport an average high in Colorado City of 50 degrees and an average low or 23 degrees. Not much change from January.

March will zoom up to an average high of 59 degrees and an average low of 31 degrees. Finally, the dogs water bowl outside wont freeze over every night.

April has contrasts of 64 degrees and 36 degrees and May comes in with an average high of 72 degrees and an average low of 44 degrees.

Normally, Id carry on and fill you in on the rest of the year. I wont. To begin with, eventually, the average temperatures start getting colder again and I would rather end on a positive note. Also, as I get older, its all I can do to remember what is supposed to happen next week let alone in October or November.

I have observed in my own life that the external temperature has a great deal to do with my internal temperature. Even though the thermostat might say 70 degrees, I am hot or cold depending on what is going on with me.

Of course physical activity effects how warm or cold I am. Setting in a chair is much colder that being up and moving around. But temperature also has a lot to do with what is going on with me emotionally.

Say, for instance I am on the phone with the Internal Revenue Service. Actually, say I am on the phone with the Internal Revenue Service voice prompt system. You know what I mean, the one that asks you to say why you called, or what you want, or who you want to speak to.
