weather griping

I really hope summer will get a bit drier as it goes on. However, I'd be happy if it stayed on the cool side, because anything above 25°C makes me miserable. Though actually according to a weather press notice I just read, it turns out the average June temperature has been almost two degrees above the long term average here, but I guess it didn't feel like it because it's been much wetter than usual (135l per sqm instead of 70l per sqm).

Anyway, I feel like indulging the time honored tradition of weather griping, so have a poll:

We're hitting like 36c most days this month. We had the longest spring, and then summer hit like a hammer.

I am that rare German who likes hot summers (except for when it doesn't cool off at night at all), and I am thoroughly disappointed so far this year...

Where's the option for "it's always summer where I am". LOL.

(Also, even though it's always hot here, the humidity's been TERRIBLE these last couple days in particular.)

Yeah, I read something like this and I call bullshit. Maybe it applies for Germany overall... east and south have been pretty hot at times. But in the north west, no way is this above average. Most days we're not even hitting 20°. Maybe that's normal in recent years, but not long term, not for June.

*gripes*

god I hate cold weather and rain...

It's been warmer than usual here - and it already felt like July weather in May o_0 - and since June, also much wetter (which at least until now hasn't been too bad, because we got very little snow in the winter and too little rain in spring and everyhting needed water) - but it hasn't been too terribly long hot spells IMo (not like I recall from I think it was 2011). People arte starting to complain about the rain about nowish, when it started again after a week of sunny and warm, though I think the warmer-than average and longer-than-average would apply to our summer right now. The rain has been abundant when it comes though, so it might become a problem at some time. I don't like too hot (and fortunately I now have a heating pump which also can cool in summer, yay), mostly as I'm at work rain does not bother me either, so for me it has been a decent summer so far (as I can change clothes after biking to work through the rain :)).
