for those of us in the Northern hemisphere enjoying summer this is a chance to put down a one liner that explains why it is summer.

This is for one-liners, no big long essays, only one small picture in a post, and keep it light.

(Those in the Southern Hemisphere may either wait six months, or start a thread along the lines "It must be winter because...")

It must be summer because car alarms are going off at random with nobody in sight...

You mean to say that people in the northern hemisphere are still allowed to use those things? :-O

Cheers.

And burglar alarms, and as usual these days, no one takes any notice of them any more. All to do the atmospheric pressure that varies with sudden thunderstorms.

It must be summer because this is
Alberta and we know it will be the
shortest season of the year.

Because I was standing out in the sun for a couple hours yesterday, taking pictures of the Trolley Parade at Illinois Railway Museum. And I forgot to put on some sunblock first. Fortunately, what was exposed had already tanned from previous, briefer, exposures.

It's only head/neck/arms. And I was wearing a baseball cap to keep the sun off my face (somewhat).

It must be summer because -
- The schools are all closed
- it's 110F in the shade
- many of my fully-retired neighbors have gone to the coast.

It must be summer beacuse the air fills with smell of solar cream during the day and with scent of barbecue in the evening...
