Seasons Change


Natsgirl1

The Far Reach has a new chapter up.

Natsgirl commented about the season already showing signs of changing. I thought it was just me that was seeing the signs so early. I guess it wasn’t.

I didn’t want to jinx it because I LOVE summer! No snow, normally no ice and it used to mean more temperate temperatures here in Ontario, Canada.

We moved here 40 years ago this November. I was 8 years old. The seasons were SO different then!

Winter meant snow and ice, ice skating, hats and mittens and boots. Now? Not so much. Now it’s more likely you’ll have the extreme cold (-40 anybody? -40 is the same in Centigrade and Fahrenheit). When it’s that cold the snow doesn’t come. We’re more likely to stay inside where it’s warm and comfortable than go outside to enjoy what the season has to offer.

Summer used to mean sunshine AND rain, warmer (not hotter) temperatures, picnics and days at the park. Now it’s more likely we’ll find a nice cold mall or restaurant where we’re uncomfortable simply sitting and relaxing because the temperatures have climbed into the triple digits (unheard of not so long ago in Canada) for days on end with no relief in sight.

In 1975 there was no humidity to speak of, now that seems to be what summer is about sigh.

I could have sworn we left all that behind when we moved from the southern states. I guess I was wrong since Ontario feels more like home each year that goes by. I don’t mean because I’m finally calling Canada home, I mean because our weather patterns are becoming more and more in tune with Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and the rest.

Last week our highs were in the high 70’s with little humidity. Today we will be triple digits including humidex.

It’s going to be a long week.
