“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”

~ George Santayana.

That reminds me.  I must go out and have some tender coconut water soon.

Historically throughout the month of April daytime temperatures will generally reach highs of around 37°C. At night the average minimum temperature drops down to around 20°C.

In recent times, not including this year, the highest recorded temperature in April has been 42°C that’s 108°F, with the lowest recorded temperature 11°C, about 51°F.

Normally the average daily relative humidity for April is around 38%.

This year, we are having a very unusual April with daytime temperatures around 30°C and minimums around 17°C.  Humidity has been lower too at around 36% despite having some showers, which too have been unusual.

Last year we were using our air conditioners or desert coolers quite regularly but this year we have not barring a couple of occasions during the afternoon siesta.

I don’t think that my friends Arun and Nirmala will have the missing husband problem this year around this time.  If however the normal summer reverts, they may well have a similar experience this year too, but much later than they had last year.

    1. All the best. My summers here last just about a couple of months at the outside. And because of the low humidity, it is not tiring or debilitating. I love to be here compared to Chennai where maximum number of my family members live.
