It's that time of year again when everyone seems surprised by the weather. Summer has well and truly come to Thanet and we're panicking like it's the end of days. I saw a notice at the train station reminding us to keep a bottle of water with us at all times. Don't get me wrong, it is jolly warm out there, but it's summer, it's supposed to be jolly warm.
The same as every year that I can remember, warnings are being broadcast everywhere that they can get them. Drink lots. Wear sunscreen. Stay out of the sun between 11 and 3 because that's when the sun is the strongest. Surely we know this at this point? I understand that this weather is dangerous to some, and they should follow that advice, but, honestly, do we need to get told every year that the sun is trying to kill us? News sites are littered with heat wave warnings. Those same reporters will tell us how cold it is in December, too. It being hot in July isn't news.
So, if, like me, you're tired of hearing about how hot it is, let's just enjoy the sun why we've got it. It won't last long but at least we'll be getting a load of Vitamin D in our system for healthy bones, right?
Perhaps while enjoying the sun you could try and catch some Pokémon? (I had to get that in here, didn't I?) Feel free to let me know any good spots, I'm sick of Pidgeys.
