And at the other end of the scale, loganberrybunny recently noted that Aberdeen's apparently seen an exceptionally dull July: "It was duller than April -- itself the dullest April on record. It was duller than January, in fact, and that really takes some doing for northern Scotland!"

Much as I'd prefer the climate to be somewhat warmer and brighter than I've experienced this year, I recall the Southern Oregon summers being of that kind - when it's up above 100F, you really don't feel like doing much of anything except sprawling out on the relatively cool floor. ^_^;

Still, it's at least a reasonably pleasant day today. I even felt justified in leaving the coat at home! Now all I need is to encounter a field with dozens of happy bunnies. =:)
