Just Another Day In Paradise

It is possible to have too much of a good thing. Day after day of sunshine, blue skys, and gentle breezes can wear on a person after a while. The sight of palms swaying and waves rolling in becomes old hat. Just as a steady diet of steak and lobster becomes ho hum, so does incredibly beautiful weather.
Folks in San Diego, Hawaii, and Palm Beach can actually suffer from depression from a relentless number of fine days. The cure is an occasional cloudy, drizzly day. Of course, there's very little sympathy for the depressed people living in paradise. Nine weeks or less of summer weather a year isn't enough to curry compassion from winter hardened northerners. When they are knee deep in snow and slush with winds howling, it's Florida they're longing for. Meanwhile, Floridians are thinking a few weeks in Canada might be fun. It's just another case of the grass is always greener.........or in this case, the snow is always whiter on the other side of the fence.
