Cooler here too, sprinkling. Long hot summer as well, seasoned with smoke from the wildfires.
I spent the first half of my life in the desert. The seasons there were "a little chilly" and "incineration." I didn't experience four distinct seasons until I was in my forties. I love them all. The autumn colors- testing good rain gear. The silent, pristine challenge of winter. The victory lap in the moist warmth of spring. And the adventures of the summer.
The four season lifestyle is far more arduous than the two season, especially where I currently live, but most definitely worth the effort.
