Well , the last day of our winter time was yesterday and when I went to sleep there was a snow blizzard here where I live , it is told from an old legend that if winter and summer freeze together the summer is going to be good and it did ...today the sun is shining and no wind , so thank you all for the wintertime and may you all have a great summer time ahead of you , love and hug from an Iceman ...witch is one of a kind .

Much as I enjoy summer weather, here in SE England we could do with rain right now and plenty of it.

Thanks, Skarpi, happy summer to you, too. Though, summer here won't start until later, which is good. I am not ready for it! It gets too hot and dry, here.:-)

ATB,

Its been two years since we have had any snow in the coastal Carolinas. That's why I moved down here. 4 snow falls in six years..

Enjoy the weather Skarpi.

How long is it dark up there on June 20?

Do you just recognise two seasons in Iceland, skarpi, summer and winter? In the same way we have day and night.

June is a good month to refresh.

Is it summer when the crickets start chirping?

Because yesterday, when the sun was low,
the crickets were carrying on like mad
in the tall uncut grass
next to the railroad tracks.

I'm calling it summer.
The solstice is weeks away,
but what is going on is more summer than spring.

I guess the pollen all over the parked cars
is part of summer as well.

The green growing things
couldn't get any greener around here
or they would bust the green part of the spectrum.

Not very winter-y here yet, although we have had a frost and a few fogs.

Solstice this weekend, also World Make Music Day......bring your instruments to the bonfire dance, clothing optional....

I don't know how our forbears managed that nekkid dance around a bonfire in mid-winter without dying of hypothermia.

The first say was pretty nice, but today, the second day, brought a five minute hailstorm to some parts of RI, including mine.

Guess I ought to let this thread die
and see about a rest-of-the-summer thread.

It's just that
this past winter was an ordeal, weather-wise,
and I still think it's miraculous
that summer came back at all.
