First Day of Summer! I hate the Freaking Summer!

Recommended Posts

Damn, the pollen thread reminded me of how much I hate freaking summer! Last 3 days in the '90s, next 4 days after today all 95+ with humidity...and we got 3 more months of this crap!

 

No freaking sports to watch, reminded every day how fat I am as no sweaters or hoodies to hide behind, watering plants EVERY FREAKING DAY so they don't die, water bills through the yazoo for the lawn....,,, there is just absolutely zero, and I do mean zero, that is redeeming about a Mid Atlantic summer(well, except hot sweaty girls with clingy shirts on the metro). By far the worst 3 months on the calendar just.... get me to freaking September already..Even August and pre season football gives me hope. June and July...urghhhhhhhh

If nothing else, it looks like a good week to pressure wash the deck.

A lot of people like to flock to Florida and other southern states when it gets cold. Not me...the humidity sucks! Those southern teams must suffer some early in the season.

I tend to believe the grass is always greener.  I also live in the mid-Atlantic, a little south of DC.  In the winter, I always tell my wife “if I complain about the heat this summer, remind me of today.”  In the summer, I say “if I complain about the cold, remind me of today.”  

 

Basically, I think everyone in the mid-Atlantic love Fall and Spring.  We are just warm enough of a climate that 30 degrees sucks, and we are far enough south that 90 degree days with high humidity dominate the weather from late May to early September.  We have such huge extremes.  

 

At this point, I think I’d prefer living somewhere where the weather doesn’t fluctuate as much, regardless of temperature.  Like Florida.  Is it hot, I guess (I truly believe June-August is hotter in VA), but it is nice not knowing what 30 degrees feels like (southern Florida especially).  

 

San Diego I think has little fluctuation if you can afford to live there and don’t mind wild fires and 10:00 Bills games Sunday mornings (perhaps the main reason I won’t move West).

CFL starts in June.  I feel your pain about watering.  Only do the flowers, the grass is on its own!

Winter has extended into what is now a 5 month season.  Now THAT sucks.  I'll take hot over cold any day.

I absolutely LOVE summer! What sucks is I don’t have a pool anymore. That needs to be fixed. Even the wife, who thought she was over pools, is down with the idea. Not enough room here, so I’m house shopping! YAY! 

 

Winter blows here. I’d rather have 5 degrees and snow than 40 and rain every day. Now THAT sucks!

Come to wonderful New Hampshire where summer lasts about 6 weeks and evening temps in July can still drop to the 40s

 

Seriously my wife is having a bad pollen reaction too. She looks like one of those mutant, bug-eyed koi pond fish.

Complete opposite here, I'll take the cold. You can always put on another layer but with the heat you can only take so much off before being arrested.

My forecast in Florida, and yeah the AC is just humming away... mostly hate the hurricanes that bang around here though, hope we get a break this year.

The issue in Florida has never been the temperature.

Many places have higher temperatures.

It is the dew point, which is a measure of moisture in the air, and it is extremely high during the late spring and summer months.

Dew points above 63 get uncomfortable, and Florida's dew points are outrageously high.

That is brutal.  But still better than subzero temps, IMO.  Full disclosure .... my dog will be 11-years-old in a month and a half.  So, for over 10 years, I've had to walk her 2-3 times/day on a daily basis.  The rip-your-face-off windchills have taken their toll on me.  Once I no longer NEED to go out into that crap, my stance will likely not be so hard.
