Winters can be a bit chilly, but, since it is also the dry season, the sunshine will usually bring the temperature up to the 70s by mid-afternoon.
The last couple days, however, we have hardly seen the sun at all. It hasn't rained, but the skies have been overcast. On Thursday the low was a very chilly 37 F, and the high was only 55 F. (At higher elevations in the city the thermometer went below freezing, and according to the newspaper, a couple of homeless people were found dead from hypothermia.) On Friday the high temperature was only 59 F. Of course homes do not have central heating, so the apartment has been chilly too.
In addition to that, I have come down with a cold... so I have been spending a lot of time inside sitting under a blanket and reading. On Friday I didn't even venture outside until Alejandro came by in the evening to go out for supper with me.
Yes, I'm sure that my readers who are suffering through real winter north of the border don't have a lot of sympathy. The good news is that by Sunday, the sun will reappear, and the high temperatures will be back in the mid-seventies.
