Complaining About The Late Summer
Not that I think the photo above is very special, it’s just a dry ground texture that I shot in our garden, but the photo fits to what I want to write about. I currently slowed down to publish posts on my blog, and there is a reason. I think it’s already one of my traditions to complain about late summer on my blog, so, here is a fresh complain about the summer.
Yea, the current weather really makes me sick, we have had both, some very hot and humid days but also some very dry days. I simply don’t get used to this kind of weather, it makes me wish to live on the North Pole. The late summer days were really unbearable in my opinion. I am in Northern Germany, and a friend who was recently in Southern Germany said “Mate, you don’t want to know how damn hot it was there”. Right, we have it fresher in the North due to the Baltic Sea, and in Bavaria there is nothing except hills.
To be honest, we also had some pretty rainy and stormy days in Northern Germany this late summer. Some of the days were fresh and it cooled down, to my liking, but most of these days were rather muggy too. It’s not even that we had super high temperatures, but it’s often all about the high air moisture and then 25 degree can feel like 50 degree. But as mentioned, we also had some super dry days, not sure what was worse, I disliked both, I dislike late summer days pretty much. The strange and sudden weather changes were straining as well. The summer was definitely moody and came with some extremes.
I must admit that I have some friends who really like hot days, no matter if high air moisture or super dry, but some people I know are like me and prefer moderate days. I have no problem with summer, I have a problem with late summer weather. I prefer sunny spring days or sunny early summer days, maybe even sunny mid summer days. I just dislike the extreme and hot days that make you sweat one minute after you left the shower.
So, it’s about me, I prefer it moderate. But I also love fall and winter. That means I like it either cold or moderately warm, that’s how you can put it in a nutshell. Since most of the recent days were not to my favor, I felt pretty depressive anyhow. I barely had the energy to do anything. I can not even convince myself to do things that I usually like, as playing guitar, writing for the blog or any of my other interests. The recent heat made me feel, sick, tired and weak all days except for the fresher days. it was definitely unbearable.
That is what high summer is to me. I basically just enjoyed the moderate or fresher days, and in some cases even only the nights when it cooled down. But at the moment I do just hope that the last summer weeks are not too hot, I basically can not await autumn. Anyway, I enjoyed two-thirds of the summer and was able to practice with my camera, just the late summer days annoyed me pretty much, as every year.
