Day after day… the same old thing

While my friends in Washington State are complaining about the weather (that summer hasn’t arrived yet) I can’t help but feel disappointed in their reaction. They don’t know how good they’ve got it. They just don’t know how incredibly infuriating it is to wake up to the same blue cloudless sky every single day. ‘I wonder what the weather will be like today? Gee, let me guess… ummm… blue skies light breeze around 70 degrees’. Queensland is the definition of monotony, day after day after day, year round, blue skies somewhere between 70 and 95 degrees.

In Washington at least you have four distinct seasons: Spring – could be rainy, could be cold, could be cloudy; could be all three! ‘look the leaves are coming back to the trees… oh that’s mould growing on the snow on the trees’, Summer – could have intermittent rain, could be mostly cloudy ‘woohoo its over 50, time for t-shirts and flip-flops baby ‘, Fall – could be rainy, probably cold, could be cloudy ‘is baseball season over yet?’, Winter – could be rain, could be frozen rain, definitely cloudy ‘spring training starts in 130 days’.

Where’s the gratitude?

Over the last few days there’s been a bit of a break here, its rained for about ten minutes three times a day, then, goddamn it, back to blue skies.

I’m just about done with here.

Day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day.

    Same where I live… in fact, I came across this page because I googled, “same weather every single day”.

    We do however, have variations in certain things like: Will there be 98% humidity today, or only 73%? Will it be hot as hell outside or even better, hot as balls? (I’m thinking balls is worse.) Will it be slightly breezy or will we have gale force winds like usual? -Which actually goes great with high humidity if you’re a woman and you actually try to care how your hair looks.

    Le sigh… Thanks for the vent!
