Drabble #31

Prompt: Summer Cold


I wake up at 7:30 and the first thing I do is switch on the air conditioner; the sun is barely up and already it’s baking. The heat simmers on through noon and then at 1:30 on the dot, the temperature plummets and rain falls out of the sky; I shut off the air conditioner and crack the windows a bit, let the heat out. At 6 p.m. it’s down 75 degrees, practically frigid for June in Texas. When the water stops, I open up the windows all the way and let the cool, clean air in.
