Summer Ain’t Over Yet

Hot September Day
Today's weather. 20% refers to the chance of rain, not the humidity.

I have a love-hate relationship with the Japanese summer. Summer, like our beleaguered Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, is supposed to be over; but, also like Julia, it continues to stubbornly stick around.

My love-hate relationship can be summarised thus:

LOVE:

  • For about 3 to 4 months, at any time of the day or night, you only need a T-shirt.
  • Sitting outside on balmy summer evenings, listening to the sounds of small-town life.
  • The humidity in the air makes one’s skin feel soft and seems to relieve muscle pain.
HATE:
  • Sleeping is difficult.
  • The humidity in the air makes one’s skin feel sticky.
  • At the slightest movement one sweats like George W Bush at a press conference. Yes, it really is that uncomfortable.

    well it is only expected to reach 14 deg C here today, and that is in the city, yesterday it only reached 9 deg C at Mt Lofty, not that we were there, but it was cold here too. But the weather experts are predicting 25 deg C next Friday. If you want to keep up with what we are doing I will send you an invite to Flickr and you can see our photos

    All my photos with people in that I know have restricted access to friends and family only, so that’s why you need my invite to see them all (it will be from my flickr email which is rocketmail

    glad you have all arrived safely, God Bless
