Around the Pond, summer is reminding us that it isn’t quite gone yet. Yesterday it was 25°C (77°F), which doesn’t sound very hot. But as the saying goes, it’s not the heat but the humidity that gets you. The humidex (what it feels like with the humidity factored in) was 32°C (90°), and that’s darn warm. However, as soon as the sun went down, the temperature dropped to a lovely 17°C (63°F).
Weather is obviously the topic on my mind today. It’s not surprising, seeing as I’m a Canadian. Really, we haven’t much to talk about other then the weather, hockey, and American politics. Anyway, I’ve come to realise that I’m a bit odd when it comes to weather. It seems that most people love hot summer days, or cool, crisp winter days. Fall and spring are okay too, as long as it doesn’t rain to much and it’s mild. Well, I’m quite the opposite. I love cooler summer days and thunder storms. I love snow in the winter. And the spring and fall should be full of rain. quanta would probably chime in here and say that I complain bitterly when the weather is like that. Yeah, I probably do, but I enjoy it anyway. Why? Because I love to listen to the sound of the rain, and I love the way it makes the grass and flowers grow. And snow in the winter makes a dull, dark city look a little magical. And goodness knows we could all use a wee bit more magic in our lives.
