It’s my favourite topic on this blog of late but this summer has been very mild. It was cloudy for most of the weekend and it even rained a bit this Sunday. It’s almost the end of June now and we’ve had no real long stretches of sunny and warm temperatures.
I wouldn’t even mind mild temperatures if it was just sunny instead but this summer has been bleh overall. We’ve received the odd day where it’s sunny but then the cloud cover will just return. To top it all off, this weekend was the summer solstice. That means, at least in the northern hemisphere, the days have stopped getting longer, and will get successively shorter until winter arrives again. So far, all we’ve experienced are longer and cloudy days. What we have to look forward to now are shorter and cloudy days.
