The difference between CA and OK, lol

In California, summertime is a blissful 75 degrees, and you spend all of it outside. It doesn't rain much in the summer, but if it does, it's cold, and you complain about rain in August and you stay inside.

In Oklahoma, summertime is akin to living on the sun, and you spend all if it inside. It doesn't rain much in the summer, but if it does, it's a warm rain with puddles that dry up almost right before your eyes, and you rejoice, and you turn your face up to the sky, and let the rain make little trails down your shoulders, and you stop in the middle of your school day to go outside and dance in the rain until it's gone, all the time wishing it would never go away.

Why didn't we ever think to dance in the rain when we lived in California?

Love it! We transplanted from CA to NC, where the summers are more like OK. I was just thinking the other day how nice it will be when the SUMMER is over so the kids can play outside!!! And rain - oh, we wish for rain while other parts of the country are flooding! But for the most part, I far prefer NC to CA!!! :)

Adorable pictures! Actually, I heard on the news that July in Oklahoma was the hottest month on record for any state in the U.S. EVER. And I believe it.

My husband is from Arizona and he said that even in the desert it gets cooler at night. This has been the hottest, most miserable summer in Oklahoma that I can ever remember. We were praying for rain and, when it finally rained, we were all outside, looking up at it as if it was the first time we had every seen rain:).
