Turn, Turn, Turn

Funny that right around this time, so many of my blogger friends are commenting on the change in weather where they live. So, same here!

Weather's been cooling down in Taiwan as well, particularly in the past week (after the typhoon). What used to be constant 30C+ weather is now a much more manageable 28C highs and 22C lows.

Instead of crazy desert sun bearing down on us poor folk, we are now treated to a gentle sun wafting in through the windows, and a nice breeze. The breeze is actually cool air now, as opposed to before, when it was just "wind that's less hot than no-wind".

My south-facing office now has a direct injection of sunlight each day, and I have to adjust the blinds a little, but it's a welcome dose of natural light.

This is my favourite time of the year in Taipei, and I think it's because after the humid heat of the summer, the slight nippiness is welcome. Reminds me a bit of home.

It's been pretty nice in the bay area the last few weeks. It's in the high 70's to low 80's for most of the bay. It's even warm in San Francisco! We're hitting our indian summer, so this weather won't last very much longer.

But this kind of weather in Taiwan is unpredictable. Weather here in general is unpredictable. I don't know if it's going to start pouring rain in the afternoon, if it'll get really chilly all of a sudden, or what.

But I'm pretty sure I'll be in for some good whether when I go scuba diving in October in Kenting.

Take caution if you come across any stingrays: they're not just the friendly teachers of clownfish.
