Adopt me pleeeeeease

Does anyone here live in a cool climate, preferably with temperatures currently below 70F? If so, adopt me pleeeeeease. It's 102F here. I'm dying...

I'm well-behaved. I can do household chores. I can amuse you by singing made-up little ditties. I am adept at cooking a variety of Italian, Japanese, and Filipino dishes. I can be your bike buddy. I'm decorative.

Adopt meeeeeeeee.

Coastal San Diego isn't quite that cold, but nevertheless is quite comfortable.

And likely to be again.

However, the heat out here doesn't compare with the heat/humidity in the East. They have it much worse.

Yeah, it's been 100+ here too. If it stays hot I'm gonna load up on the carbs and go into estivation.

Come to Colorado. It's only in the 90's today in Denver. And it's a dry heat.

It's nice and cold here. Of course it is the middle of winter. It's currently -2C and it is forecast to get to a very warm 15C.

I'll adopt you Neko.

It actually looks like only the high 90s until we get back into the 100s this weekend.

Luckily up here the coastal regions are two hours or less away, and 20-30 degrees cooler.
