    Default I Hate Sumertime

    Far to much daylight. Even worse is daylight savings time, makes it so I have even more sunshine in my day. It makes it impossible for me to tell when it is getting late and anything simple I need to do just doesn't get done. Its Seven right now and it is far to bright. It is supposed to be getting late and it looks like the middle of the day outside. I can't wait until next Winter when things get properly dark again.
    Why? Flying Belgium.

    Worry not, Sumer's time has been done for a long while. Why, nobody's even seen a Sumerian in living memory.

    Did I just call you out on spelling? Yes. But only because this thread's sole purpose is complaining about the weather.

    I've had enough of freezing my nostril hairs off, shoveling 3 foot deep snow, and nightfall at 3 in the afternoon. Bring on the summer. Long may it wave. (And I'm a guy who usually likes cooler weather. But this winter -- too much. Too much by far.)

    I don't hate summer per se, but it has its irritations. In the last few years, it's tended to be too hot, and I have problems with hayfever. Winter isn't much better, though; it just has its own set of problems. What makes me sad is that spring and autumn, the two seasons I tend to get on best with (particularly autumn, since hayfever isn't such an issue) appear to be getting shorter year on year, while winters are getting colder and summers hotter.

    You know, we have these modern devices called "clocks" that are designed to tell us when it's getting late without needing to check the position of the sun in the sky! I know, amazing, I'll be telling you we can ride around in a metal box on wheels at ten times the speed of a running man next...

    To be fair, I try to get through the day looking at a clock as little as possible. I've been caught by surprise by the clocks going forward/back and its not getting dark or light at the same time. But yeah, if you need to get anything done, you really need a clock.

    Summer's lovely! The only thing that annoys me though is the amount of expensive sun lotion I need to buy each year, as every time I go outside I need to apply a new layer every 1-3 hours. I guess that's why I usually rather boil in my clothes than show skin.

    The amount of light is a problem though, but back in Finland I've got some special curtain with a special layer that basically doesn't have any light come through it. It's how I survive the summer, really. Because the night in Finland is either nightless or even the 1-2 hours of darkness you get down south is not that dark at all.

    Up here in Scotland it feels like late September to May it's all autumn and spring. Winter in the UK is simply weird and a concept I don't think I'll ever understand.

    Summer is my favorite time of year (provided we have a normal rain filled summer and finally get out of this drought)

    Most people in this city just cannot appreciate 90+ degree weather or 99 percent relative humidity, but that feels more comfortable to me than being in an air conditioned space

    Well, it's all relative. If you're from some frozen post-apocalyptic half-Narnia half-Tattooine where frost giants and trolls stalk the earth and man should have known better than ever to set foot, then of course winters here will seem mild. But since I hail from the (tropical) Westcountry, winters in Scotland would be quite enough for me, thanks. I did do one winter in New England. I can live without doing that again.

    Girls going around wearing bikini tops because it's the best way they can think of to stay cool, or just lounging by the pool, getting up for a dip whenever they've dried out just a bit too much.

    Guys going around wearing not much of anything at all except for a crude pair of shorts as a nod in the direction of modesty while their bodies glisten in the sun.

    Summer has its perks if you know where to look, I suppose.

    Eh, I can't see how more light, visibility and all can be bad... It saves energy/money to don't have to use a bulb for starters.

    I certainly don't like the heat and sharp light at all, make no mistake, from whatever reason. So I can sympathize somewhat.

    But since I've learned that lack of sun exposure can be rather bad for you, as far as vitamin D and hormonal production, I try to combat it...

    And laying on the grass in shorts, while it's 30 C outside certainly is pretty nice.

    I love springtime. I have the cutest outfits prepared for weather around 70-75 degrees and sunny. We've been in the low 60s the past few weeks, we're almost there. Long days have to be one of the best things, I can spend evenings outside on the porch, sipping a drink and reading a book, no longer confined to indoors by darkness and weather.
    It's when it gets to the 90s that I'll miss the awful winter we've been having. Even then it's only that hot during the day, so when it gets down to the 70s in the evening it's lovely and I'm glad there's still sunlight available for me.

    I enjoy the general implacability of the weather. Too hot, too cold, it's refreshing to be reminded of the complete impartiality of the universe sometimes. Besides, suffering makes the running better. Nothing is more boring than a run in perfect conditions, and few things better than eight miles in a blizzard as my eyeballs freeze shut, or under the broiling sun while sweating enough to drown any insect unlucky enough to bump into me.

    No, seriously, how would you feel if your summers reached 95º F (we use Celsius, though, so I had to change it) and had showers every goddamn day, and when the winter actually reached, the main difference was becoming dry and dropping to 59º F? But wait, there's more! This year the showers in the summer didn't actually came, so we're stuck with little to no water, it's getting dryer and dryer every day that passes, and we'll probably have energy shortages within a few weeks!

    Same here. Frankly, after the non-winters we've been having of late, I found it quite enjoyable. Cold doesn't bother me too much - I'll run in anything down to about 8 degrees Fahrenheit, not counting windchill, and otherwise it's just a matter of dressing appropriately. People use these flimsy shelled polyester coats, which don't work for crap. Wool, leather and fur is the way to go.

    Pffh. Real heat is when its 95 degrees outside, and you go spend a couple hours working line-cook at a steak house without air conditioning in the kitchen. When you glance down and your meat thermometer reads 150 degrees siting on the countertop, then you've been hot. And until it's below zero for at least an entire day straight, nobody's got crap to complain about when it comes to winter.
