The Summer That Never Was

Real Estate Agent with Prudential California Realty

I never thought I'd be complaining about how cool the weather is. Normally where I live, in Southern California, it is at least 95 degrees right now, and things are warming up as we head into "Fire Season". Last year at this time we were cleaning ash off of our cars as the numerous brush fires were going strong.

Not so this year. I even had to apologize to one of our foreign exchange students about the unusual cloud cover every morning. What we call "June Gloom" had leaked over to July, and even to August. The trips planned to the beach were called off, and sweatclothes were the uniform of the day. I complained constantly to my husband, asking him why we were getting cheated out of our summer.

I know that just because I didn't like the cool weather, it will be a blazing summer next year. Me and my big mouth. So forgive me, Southern California, for the record-breaking Summer of 2011!

Lord, come to Texas for a while!  I actually wore shorts to work today.  I just couldn't bear the thought of wearing anything longer.  Thank goodness I work in a lake area office!  Not so many 100+ days this summer, but the humidity has been so much worse than normal.  Maybe we could have an agent exchange program for the summer....

Here on the Western Slope of Colorado...we've had more rain than we've been use to in a long time. I"m loving it, and haven't had to water the garden quite as often.

Heather, I don't know if I would complain about not having 95 degree weather.  But then, I do like it a little cooler!

Heather, for some reason the Seattle area got your weather.  Just to let you know, it's too hot for me.

It's a bummer when summer disappoints...we on the other hand in nyc had a hot, hot, hot summer! We barely used our backyard.

Hi Heather,

I'm with you. Just the other day I was saying that I was still waiting for summer to get here - and it's almost over.
