It was a wonderful summer

We had a glorious summer here last week. I can’t remember if it was for three or four days, but whatever it was it was divine. Sunny days, warm breezes, smiles galore, it was fantastic.

When we first moved here I found the endless chatter about the weather quite odd. My first instinct when the conversation veered down that road was “Who cares?”. I’ll tell you who cares. I care. We all care. We are obsessed with the weather because it is truly bizarre. A typical day starts with, oh let’s just say for arguments sake, clouds and overcast. We have our cloudy clothes and mindset firmly in place and go about our day. Wait, hang on, oh yayyyy, it’s sunny. Not just a little sunny, superb, blue blue skies, puffy pink and white clouds sunny. Fantastic, walking will be so lovely and, wait, is that HAIL???? It’s HAILING , are you kidding me? Icckkkkkk, it’s hailing and it’s wet and cold and oh my God it is suddenly hot. Hot like we just finished samba dance class hot, humid, sweating and …… oh my, here comes the wind.

I may sound ludicrous, only because I am, but that’s a typical day here. So we carry on with our blumbershoots and talk about the summer that was.
