    Technically, summer starts later this month, but for most, it already has....

    I love summer, whats your favorite part (or if you don't like summer.... what isn't?)


    For me, its the sounds, the smells, the long days.... and I do like heat.. so long as it isn't over 100 (which is a challenge in Kansas)....
    Nothing like it!

    Well we have the flip flop mentality in Florida, but happy that the rest of the country gets to participate in the summer!

    The heat! Jebus, Canadian winters can be a bitch! Then again, Toronto's summers are pathetically humid anyways. It's hard to find a happy medium. But 6 months of cold just pisses me off.

    I don't like summer because of the humidity. Maybe I should move to the Southwest?

    What I like. . .

    Being outdoors

    Running shirtless

    The beach

    The fragrance of suntan lotion

    Long days--it doesn't get dark till close to 9 pm

    Heat.
    Sweat.
    Muscles.
    Working out.

    Being all the man I can be....whatever that is.

    I just walked around the shoreline where I live here at Lewisville Lake, TX.

    Just a few hundred feet from my front door:

    Where I live, it is much like summer every day - for most of the year - with the exception of around Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love it - because I seem to thrive on blue sky, sunshine, swimming pools, tennis courts and just being outside wearing shorts and flip flops so much of the year. It is so good - seeing other guys going by with no shirts, cycling, running, driving convertibles. Life is great in summer weather.................conducive to starting a new relationship.icon_cool.gif

    I'm patiently waiting for summer to arrive. The last several days, the temp has been just a few degrees above freezing. I'm covering bedding plants nightly to protect from the frost.

    However, I love the 17hrs of daylight and the hot temps that are typical of this time of year. Pumps up the energy level.

    I like how late the sun sets, and the ability to go to an outdoor pool.

    Also, there is no official start or end of seasons in the US--this is a myth propagated primarily by tv weatherpeople and calendar makers. The most logical way to divide the calendar into seasons is to base it on weather. In the northern hemisphere, if you want to call each season 3 months long, you'd do better defining summer as June, July, and August. That gives you September, October, and November for autumn; December, January, and February for winter; and March, April, and May for spring. Sound a bit more sensible?

    Even if we were to measure seasons by solstices and equinoxes, it would make much more sense to center each season on a solstice or an equinox than to bound them as the edges. Under the idea that summer somehow begins on June 21st and ends on September 23rd, that means that each day of summer there is progressively less daylight. Wouldn't it make more sense to make summer the three months with the most daylight?

    The smell of freshly cut grass...


    And also, tennis, bbq'ing, eating outside at restaurants. Not insane heat. Over 85 degrees is not for me.
