Weather Changes – from +20 to -2

March 27, 2012

I`m up here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and we`ve been having some really funky weather. Our normal this time of year is about 5C.
The past two weeks have been lovely: mostly sunny with daytime highs hovering just under 20C.. I`ve lost count of the number of days that have broken the historic high temperature here. When it wasn’t warm enuf to break a historic record, it was pretty dang close to! Unfortunately all things must to end, including this gorgeous warm streak.. It took a mere 24 hours to go from late Spring/early summer, back to late winter/early spring. Weather shifts tend to be disastrous, especially dramatic, uncharacteristic ones. Not just to us, our pets and all of God’s creatures too. The worst goes to those of us with conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia when the temperature drops or the barometer swings extensively. These are some of the worst days we can have, living in total agony.
Today is one of the worst days in quite a while and I think it’s hitting me harder than normal cuz I’ve been doing really well physically lately, with the nice weather & all.. The worst of the worst is my right arm, just below the elbow, on the outside. I can’t remember the name of the muscle, but when I move it, it screams – Loudly. & I am right handed.. It sucks.

 

FYI, Temperature conversions
0C=32F, 5C=41F, 20C=68F.
