The Weather in Virginia
I have been here for two weeks now and I am still amazed by the weather here. This is how a typical day has gone thus far. Wake up at around 6 oclock and it is hot. I mean HOT.. like 80 degrees and humid. You are melting away in your uniform as you make your way to work. It feels wrong to drink coffee because it feels like you are only adding to the pain.
Then you spend the first part of your day in a poorly air conditioned school house, stepping our every once in a while for smoke breaks and stretch breaks. At around 11 O’clock we roll out to lunch. At this point in the day it is even hotter than it was before. It is like 90, or 100 degrees still humid. You go to lunch, eat some mass produced food and then it happens. THE MOMENT. The moment in the day when the weather goes out of whack.
As you are walking back to the classroom from the dining facility you see lighting in the sky and then out of no where the temperature drops to 60 degrees, the rain stops pouring down and it sounds like D-Day with all of the thunder. You get soaked on the way back to class and smell like a wet dog for the rest of the day.
The rain continues to late in the afternoon. When you get out class just when your clothes finally dried up again you get soaked some more. Still smelling like a wet dog. You go about your day, study, eat, call your husband, smoke. Then as night time rolls around and the sun goes down, once again the temperature spikes up, dries up all the rain and you are left in your room sweating through the night.
