Is Summer Really Over?

Here in the pit of Hell, also known as Arizona, it's hard to tell most of the time. Our hot season usually begins in June, though in the nearly 18 years I have lived here, it has hit triple digits as early as March some years. The debilitating heat usually lasts well into October and sometimes into November. I have discovered that it has gotten very hard for me to get into the spirit of the holidays when it's in the 70s or 80s in December. It just doesn't feel like Christmas to me. I miss the four seasons and look forward to the day when I will be able to leave this hell-hole for some green grass, trees, seasons and, hopefully, white Christmases.

Hi Sharal,
Welcome to blogging. It's a good way to blow of steam, some days. Of course, if it's too dry, you probably don't have steam there in AZ. Remember the humidity and wind chills that come with the mid-west, and the snow storms/blizzards along the great lakes and east coast. The greenery is attached to pollen and allergies.

I'm just trying to make you feel better. Is it working?

Hi Sharal and welcome to the highly contagious world of blogging! If you're tired of the weather in "pit of Hell" come up to the Great White North for a winter, and I'm sure it will cure you. :D
