5 Things I Hate About Summer

5thingsDr. Tanya has this prompt called “5 Things,” where she asks us to list five things about a particular topic. Her latest topic is five things you hate about summer.

To be honest, I don’t really hate anything about summer. I know a lot of people complain about the summer heat and humidity, but up until February, I lived in San Francisco, where it just never gets really hot in the summer. In fact, there’s a quote that is attributed to Mark Twain, although he never actually said it. That quote is, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”

But in February my wife and I moved from San Francisco to a suburb about 35 miles east of San Francisco. And the climate in our new venue is very different than it is in San Francisco, as can be seen by this.27478E43-58FB-4B25-9C51-F9985EA899CCSo now there is, indeed, one thing I hate about summer. The heat!

    Wow! Having lived in that same area (San Joaquin Valley), I think 108 is unusual even there! I hope the heatwave doesn’t last long!

      Through Tuesday or Wednesday, it seems.

          Oh, them! 😂 Well, I suppose that social distancing and wearing masks helps alleviate that problem to some extent.

    Things I would hate if they happened: water shortages, water rationing, fires, temperatures above a hundred, dried up plants (too real)

    I gave up on an area of the yard where I was trying to grow some greenery. I wanted to have wintergreen as a groundcover in a corner, under a tree.

    The ridiculous humidity, the bugs, tornadoes/severe storms, not having a “beach bod”, stores pushing Halloween things,
