early summer?

As if an unusually hot May Day weren't enough.... Honestly, May Day last year we went to Dalian for the week, and it was great, but in the mornings and evenings we wore jackets, which we carried with us everywhere during the daytime because the sea breeze still carried a bit of a chill. This year? Forget it. Sure, we're not as far north as Dalian, but we spent the holiday up in Yanqing which is always a couple of degrees cooler than Beijing, and yet it was t-shirts and sandals. Even at night, which can get pretty cool even in mid-summer up there.

And now this week the weather patterns look distinctly summery. Fortunately that mid-summer blast furnace heat hasn't hit us yet, but otherwise..... Rain, humidity, those occasional summer storms that sweep through in about half an hour..... Well, no, it's not full on summer weather patterns, but it's looking more like summer than I would've expected for this time of year.

And there are still people who pretend global warming isn't happening......
