I'm a summer person. I live in a winter sports paradise but I'm a summer person. I make it through the snowy frozen frigid months thinking only x more months until watermelon, paddling pools, bbqs, peaches, salads three meals a day etc etc.
Last year was a cold summer. Record low number of sunlight hours. Low temperatures. My red and yellow capsicums never ripened- not warm enough.
That's ok I thought. there's always next summer- it will be bound to be twice as good.
It's the end of May and it's a balmy (barmy more like) 8 degrees tonight. We have the fire on (and not just because I want my carpark back.)
What happened to global warming?
