(another) cold summer

The long term weather forecast came out- cold summer.

fabulous.....

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.

Nope.

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?

Seriously.

LMAO that's exactly what I said! "Where in the hell is the global warming?!?!" I really thought it was starting to warm up, until we came back from 4 days in Okinawa! I had to wear a sweater coming home from the airport :(

We should swap homes. I hate heat. I REALLY hate heat and humidity. Dh tried to tell me about Gifu before I came here, but it never occurred to me that people would CHOOSE to live somewhere with such miserable hot humid summers.

That said, this year is unusually cool, quite nice actually! If it were like this every year, I would be happy. But I think next year I will be hoping to move to Nagano. And M is very jealous of your snow. Trade?
