Stormy Weather And Summer Days


The weather is pretty funny at the moment. One day it’s super stormy with heavy rain and heavy thunderstorms, and in-between we have days that are sunny and humid. Right now it’s like alternating between a stormy day, and then a sunny day. Oh, and talking about the humid days, it seems like I am a bit hardened by the last year (the incredibly hot and humid European summer in 2018).

I think that this pretty much shows the force of nature… Continue reading Uprooted Tree
