Every new place I live I am surprised at the uniqueness of the weather. We talk about similar climates, but there's just something different about each place, that adds to its attitude and personality. Like how San Francisco is always at a perfect breezy chill like no where else. (Sorry, my lovely little bay has the best weather of all the weather, and that's that).
Growing up in Utah, we got a nice seasons spectrum, with hot summers and snowy winters. But the cold in Utah feels nothing like the soaking, bone chilling ice bath of a cold night in New York, and let me absolutely tell you, the heat of a Utah summer is nothing compared to the blustery hotness going on here in Vegas. And it's only June.
I live in a hair dryer, people.
But we have clean air filters and thermal curtains over the windows and an industrial strength fan in the living room, so we should be able to survive the summer if we're careful to always park in the shade, step outside only when absolutely necessary, and bathe nightly in sunscreen.
Which, honestly, is basically the life of a writer anyway, right? Minus the sunscreen baths. Usually.
Maybe being aware of each places unique meteorilogical personality can help us as we write settings. It can help us truly bring a place to life.
