Oh my word

Inclemencies is the word for today! It means {of the weather, the elements, etc.} severe, rough or harsh; stormy and not kind of merciful. Don Quixote speaks of such things as he explains the duties of a knight errant as opposed to just a “normal” knight.

“But we, the true knights errant, measure the whole earth with our own feet, in sun, in cold, and beneath the sky, exposed to the inclemencies of the heavens by night and day, on foot and on horse.” Volume 2, Chapter 6, Page 503

There is no exposing to inclemencies here, thankfully. It’s finally beginning to cool off. YAY! I’m soaking up every minute and getting closer to pulling out my sweaters by the day!
