Today's maximum is supposed to be 34degC.
Current temp is 23 (that is perfect, by the way).
Current humidity 90%...ick!
Predicted temp for 9am is 30degC!
I'm sorry, there is no better way to say it, Summer sucks!
Unless you like feeling sticky and drippy with sweat, I guess.
How can you feel good when you feel like the air is stifling you?
How can you feel comfortable in social situations when you have wet patches under your arms, down your back, and if you're really lucky, under your boobs??
How can you enjoy being outdoors when you're in danger of being burnt to a crisp in 2 seconds or eaten alive by mozzies in less than 2 seconds???
My kids' legs are covered with red, weepy bites.
My skin is still a little red from a couple of hours at Aussie World on the weekend.
I keep snapping at my husband, "Don't touch me!" because I'm so hot and sticky and his hands feel like they're burning me.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I was not made for this climate.
Give me gorgeous Autumn with cool mornings and the promise of cooler weather to come.
Give me sensible Winter when you can enjoy the outdoors and rug up in cozy clothes.
Give me beautiful Spring with the pretty spring gardens and crisp blue skies.
Just take Summer away, dump it somewhere undignified, and don't ever bring it back.
Summer...I hate you!
