Weekly roundup: Bad weather and summer vacations

by Kristina on June 28, 2013 · 3 comments

Happy Friday Dinks and welcome to the last Friday in June. Next weekend we celebrate the 4th of July and I am excited to say that Nick and I will be in lovely Niagara Falls for the celebration. I love a good fireworks display and no one does it better than Americans on the 4th of July.

June wasn’t a great weather month and I am hoping that July brings warmer climates. I know that hot humid weather can sometimes be uncomfortable but I will take +40 over -40 any day of the year. I think that is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and sub zero.

I never understand why people from warm climates move to snowy, rainy cold climates but that’s just me. It never occurs to me that some people actually like the winter. I am Ukrainian-Canadian and let me tell you, I would die happy if I never lived through another winter. That is not to say that I want to pass away before next December, I just want to move to a warmer climate.

Do you prefer the warm or cold weather?

I prefer warm weather by far! June really was a horrible month weather-wise, but I’m hoping we have a great July.

Monday July 1 is Canada Day and I am very happy to have all 3 days of the weekend off. Having an entire long weekend in the summer off is a rarity.

We are bouncing back and forth between pouring rain and extreme heat with humidity and I am very behind on my yard work because of it. We don’t get too many months of warm weather in my part of Canada and it would be great if it would NOT rain on my days off.

Hope you enjoyed this weekend and hope you have an even better 4th of July week/weekend. This June has just be full hot rainy days. Some days we have gotten 5-10 inches of rain and then blistering hot sun. I live here in south Florida and don’t know the last I felt cold weather. I prefer a mixture as I just like different seasons. But with sunshine all year round who can complain.
