Summer(?) – Ink

For this month’s Challenge

Summer time I(when daylight saving time changes are made) started on March 25th this year. The following week saw record temperatures for this month accompanied by loads of sunshine. Doctor’s surgeries and emergency rooms were filled with overeager gardeners suffering from teisted backs and other accidents as lawns were cut and plants planted. We have a saying, here, when anyone mentions good weather. The standard reply is, “Aye, but we’ll pay for it”. We paid for it! On Monday the country had up to 10” of snow blown about into blizzards on a freezing north-easterly wind. That’ll teach us. Fortunately the stuff didn’t lie. We are now back to more normal Easter weather. Summer was on a Wednesday here (the day of highest temperatures).
