Ah, the sun is shining. I got the whole floor swept up on the main level. Sunlight makes that possible 🙂
It’s cool out still, but with the sunny backyard, it feels lovely. Going out on the deck is like a spa. In the summer it REALLY is. Right now it’s just that it feels nice. In the Summer that same heating phenomenon will feel like … I don’t know, just way overheated.
It’s a phenomenon, not really, I just call it that. It’s that you can go out there and judge the weather, right? No. It’s a false warmth. [Maybe it IS a phenomenon, but I say it’s not since it’s reproduceable easily.]
In winter if you go on the deck and think it’s warm enough to go out and play, you could find yourself hauling back in within 5 minutes. It’s way colder “out there” than it is on the deck. Transfers sitution in summer. You might think it TOO HOT to go out, when it’s not really, it’s just the deck.
It’s a normal Southern Exposure thing, that’s all.
Some people in this household also consider the front door “porch” as a temperature gauge. It truly only works as that to determine if it’s BITTERLY cold or not. It has a North-Northwest Exposure, and is recessed and covered. So to use it to see if it’s warm out, you’d think it too cold out there in reality. To use it and think that it’s HOT out there, then it’s probably way hotter than you can even imagine.
North gives a cool-off
South gives a warm-up
These are just basic principles that work in nature with dwellings and other things. We are talking about –Daylight Full Sun– conditions in place.
Forgive my ramblings please! 🙂
