That Autumnal Air, or When Does Acclimatization Happen?

David and I were at the school playground yesterday, watching Eleanor and Isaac play while we waited for the older kids to get out of school.

Annette: It’s beautiful today!
David: It really is lovely. I think it has cooled off.
Annette: A lot. This is actually pleasant out.
David: It doesn’t seem hot at all. It’s really nice.
Annette: I wonder what the temperature is. (Walks fifteen feet to check the school’s thermometer) 102 degrees.
