Current mood: grumpy
On September 1, I said Autumn began. (OK, it was on the 2nd.)
On December 1, I said Winter began. (ditto)
On March 1, I said Spring began.
June 1 came and went, but no blog about Summer beginning? Oh well, I was busy. But yes, in my book, June 1 is the official start of summer here in Pittsburgh. And boy, are we getting it! We've had 90+ days a couple times already in the past week.
But where are the fireflies? It isn't really summer until the fireflies appear. I've seen them as early as May 25, often by the 29th or 30th. But here it is, the evening of June 9th, and not a single firefly yet to be seen. Wahhhh!
(patience patience ...)
But anyway. Summer is probably my least favorite season. Hot. Sticky. Bugs. Severe weather. Snowstorms are not severe. Just snowy. You can shovel snow. You cannot shovel a tornado.
