SunSpecial: Summer in the City   Leave a comment

Officially, the first day of summer isn’t marked with the end of school; the appearance of inflatable pool toys and barbeque gear in the stores; or even days so hot it seems that summer not only has arrived, but will last forever. The recorded start of summer is the Summer Solstice, this year June 20. Astronomically this marks the point when the sun reaches the highest position above the equator, to which it has been ascending since last winter; and after this date, it’s all downhill as the sun lowers, bit by bit, and the days become a little shorter, the temperature a little cooler, and in the stores we start to see summer gear replaced with Christmas merchandise. Which, according to the retail calendar, should start happening about June 21.

Michonne Says: Sometimes the hot-time is so hot marmots just go inside our burrows and sleep. Who would want to be out in all that hot-heat? Well maybe lizard-snakes that sit all day in the sun but never get hot and maybe birds that don’t seem to know better. And marmots if we get hungry and want to find some flowers to eat.

Remember to apply sunscreen if you're going outside in the summer. Or sun-tan lotion, depending on which vending machine you find.
