HAZY SHADE OF WINTER
It is a chill 50 degrees F here in Cape Town. It is the first bite of Winter, chill and windy. It feels exactly like the onset of Winter in LA. In Montreal this would still be Fall, but in a Mediterranean climate this is as cold as it really gets. You're not dressed for it and the apartment is neither heated nor insulated. So you throw on a sweater and, for a moment, shiver.
Winter in LA always feels a little harsher than it does in Montreal. In Montreal you're behind double glazed windows and you can crank up the heat. It is no betrayal for it to be cold in Montreal. But in LA, it somehow feels like a betrayl.
