I was so excited when we booked CTI for Christmas and New Years. I figured the warm weather would be a welcome retreat from the potential cold and snow of Missouri. Well, yesterday I found myself wishing that we were in Jamaica now...because it was cooler there than at home! This 100+ weather can leave any time now!
We left our house in NY at 2:30 am to make a 5:50 am flight at JFK. It was warmer at my house at 2:30 than it was when we landed in Montego Bay at 8:30 am. It was cooler in Jamaica than in NY some of the days due to heatwave in NY. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't overly hot or humid in Negril in June.
The weather in Negril this year was way better than the weather in StL. The week we were at CSA high temp's were in the upper 80's, humidity was relatively low for the tropics and the breeze was almost constant. Great weather, the best we have had in six trips to CSA. Here in StL we are in the midst of 10+ days of over 100 degrees. Fortunately the humidity is low (for this time of year) which helps a lot, but we need rain desperately with none on the horizon, even in long range forecasts.
Maybe the global warming thing is not all BS after all, eh? (no replies required, I've heard it all)
Kansas City, MO area here ....... 102 on my back porch in the shade today & sounds like it's just going to keep going up for the next few days ........ Hubby always thinks I'm crazy if I mention going to Jamaica in the summer because he thinks we always need to go to get out of the cold in the winter ........ I have been telling him for the past 2 weeks that it's cooler in Jamaica than here - PLUS - there's an ocean there & lots of tropical drinks to keep you cooled off.
