Every summer in Tel Aviv I think it's hotter than the summer before. Then, around early October, the unbearably hot time of the day shrinks down to a smaller and smaller range...in summer it gets too hot for me to go out by 9AM and becomes bearable after 8PM, then in September 10AM until 6PM, then in October 11AM until 4PM. Of course I do go out during those hours, but I try to minimize the time I remain outside of air-conditioning. Then we change the clocks back and it's Fall or whatever you call it when it's no longer too hot and before it gets too cold. Yes, I admit it does get too cold in Tel Aviv eventually, mostly at night and/or mostly indoors. This has something to do with the building materials and techniques. There is no such thing as insulation here, other than stone, and as every Queen knows, stone make those castles quite chilly in winter. That's how we got beautiful Bayeux tapestries and Persian rugs, even on the walls, not to mention those fetching ermine capes. But not in my house. The walls in my house are full of pictures: a few paintings, many prints, some drawings, and many photos. They don't work as insulation at all. And my floors are bare tile: great in summer. I do have one Killim rug covering the bedroom floor, and I love it year round.
So now we are on the cusp of comfortable for the majority of hours every day. I wonder what I'll complain about then?
