One of the boys came in and wanted my attention.
"Mom, this year we will get the hottest summer up till now."
As we have had a few warm springs, and this spring blew all the records I was apt to believe him.
But as a habit I take the weatherforecasts with a lot of caution. Especially those who forecasts over a longer period of...let's say...about 5 days.
Our climate has changed though, and we all experience that.
We went from mild winters and moderate summers, with lots of rain in autumn, to a complete different picture.
Cold winters we had the past years, with snow. Warm springs with record high temperatures, even into the tropical realm, then lots and lots of rain, a greyish summer, nice autumnweather and a sudden, too early onset of winter.
Kids are not learning at school anymore we're having a sea climate.
Teachers tell them anything about the name of our climate.
