Mark Twain was a cynical yet funny feller. I dig his way of communicating his satire and sarcasm. Today, the temperature didn’t break 50 degrees F until about 10:00 AM at my house, according to my weather station. From all reports I have heard, we won’t even break 60 degrees all day. So, it that is actually pretty cold for those of us here in Homestead. Here’s what Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain for those of you in Rio Linda) has to say about cold weather in an area that is notoriously hot all year.
In India, “cold weather” is merely a conventional phrase and has come into use through the necessity of having some way to distinguish between weather which will melt a brass door-knob and weather which will only make it mushy.
