Spring is not a conservative season. Nor summer.

Any season where it is either too damp or too warm to smoke a pipe comfortably is not conducive to the conservative elitist, who likes to stare down his nose while puffing at a heavy, room-clearing latakia. Spring and summer were designed for the liberal hedonist, whose pleasures are more bestial, unrefined, and insatiable.

Pipe smoking and cognac-sipping are best suited to autumn, though the addict will often suffer through the frozen chill of winter to smoke his bowl without offending his housemates.

I hate spring.

It was 90 degrees yesterday, and a similar high is forecasted for today. And it's only April!

In this respect, I found Miami's heat more than tolerable - I barely even noticed it. It seems that people are so used to the heat that they crank their AC units up, in homes, offices, and places of business, so that that only time I was ever anything like hot was outdoors. Anytime I stepped inside I was immediately and thoroughly cooled off. The prevailing wisdom in Pennsylvania is instead to rely on "opening a window" which merely gets a weak breeze lightly brushing against the mounting sweat on your skin.
