It’s unbelievable but it really does. It was March then, now it’s September. No, October.
Wait, now that I look at the calendar more closely it becomes apperent that… It is definitely November, we’re deep into autumn, winter is approaching (this is central Europe), and summer is long gone.
Even though it was a very long summer, as people all over the continent will confirm. It was long, it was hot, it was too dry to mention. Maybe there is something wrong with the weather, it feels like it’s changing. Not in the way they used to say, “the weather is changing”. More profoundly, more general. I cannot really explain.
Maybe someday somebody will do some research on this phenomenon. Then maybe it will be proven that it wasn’t just a vague notion I had back in the early 21st century.
