Seasons Change

According to the legendary Groundhog, winter will continue for only two more weeks.

Maybe he’s right.  

A week ago the unforgiving wind found its way into every exposed surface and chilled anyone who was underdressed.  For the first time in a while, this week wasn't that way.

Korea has four noticeably distinct seasons.  Our arrival in the spring began with rain and clouds, but quickly transitioned into warm temperatures.  Soon we were pushed into a seemingly never-ending heat wave filled with humidity, and dotted with early summer monsoons.  Fall brought cool temperatures, with leaves changing to autumn hues on every corner.  Too soon an angry winter arrived under disillusioning sunny skies.

It’s been interesting for us to experience seasons away from home.  We’re still trying to decide if the (mostly) year-round sunny and dry weather is worth enduring a hot and humid summer.  We’ll let ya know when we experience humidity again on our upcoming trip.  Ewww.

What we do know is that we're looking forward to seeing this again.

Come quickly spring!
