It’s raining – again

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFvJgjmW1nQ[/youtube]This must be the coldest, wettest, dreariest summer in history in Central Europe. The gardens are lush and green, weeds are sprouting, and the slugs are having a field day. Warm days are a rarity, and most people put on a coat when they leave the house – preferably a raincoat. There was … it must have been May, or early June … a time when it was actually summer. When I was able to wear my nice new summer clothes, and the blue sandals I’d gotten. When there was a point in applying sunscreen.

My husband has requested me not to call this season “early autumn”. He insists on “late summer”. As you can see, he is an optimist. We are planning to have a barbecue tomorrow … at our friends’ house, where there is a roofed patio where the barbecue can be positioned. Wish us the best for at least a few rays of sunshine!

    I can totally sympathize. Here in Seattle, we’ve had a few days of summer; now we are already into autumn-like weather.

    I got an autumn coat his week, and a pair of shorts in the sales. Guess which I’ve been wearing? I wouldn’t mind the cold and the rain so much if the sky wasn’t grey constantly.
    Fortunately, it’s a very nice autumn coat! ;-)

    But in Canada – at least in Ontario, we have had a spectacular summer, hot lazy days but with enough rain to keep us from worrying about fires. The far north, of course has had challenges with fires but anywhere by the great lakes has been wonderful.

    I would like to show my thanks to you for bailing me out of such a incident. Right after exploring throughout the online world and getting things which were not pleasant, I believed my entire life was done. Existing without the presence of answers to the problems you’ve fixed by means of this post is a serious case, and ones that might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your web site. Your good talents and kindness in dealing with the whole lot was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a stuff like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for this skilled and results-oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse the blog to any person who ought to have direction about this topic.
