First of all, I would like to say that I am a big fan of yours. I love your seasons and the great way you make the whole world look different at different times of the year. You do a great job, Mother Nature, and I appreciate you.
However, this letter is addressing a concern of mine. I am not sure if this has been brought up to you before, but the timeline of your seasons has been a little... off lately.
You see, "summer" is supposed to run from June 21 to September 21. Here we are, almost a full month before summer is over, and I am finding myself sitting in sweats and a heavy sweatshirt. The furnace kicked on this morning, and the kids are wearing their footie pajamas to bed already. I am feeling a bit frustrated at the fact that I need to start considering the usage of socks for my family this early in the year.
I do understand that living in the Pacific Northwest does not mean that we have the same weather systems as the rest of the country, and that I need to simply be grateful that it is not raining. However, is it too much to ask that we can still wear shorts and t-shirts in August? I do not think so.
So thank you, Mother Nature, for considering my request. Please bring back the sun and warmth as soon as possible.
