Why can't it rain?

Why are some people never satisfied?

Sweden is currently experiencing one of the longest and hottest heat waves in history. It has been a fabulous summer so far with temperatures not going below 25 degrees and tropical nights enveloping the country. But some people are complaining about it. It's too hot. It's unbearable. Why can't it rain?

These are probably the same people who complained that it rained too much last summer, that is was too windy and too chilly. The same people who moaned that this past winter was too long and dark, too stormy and enough to drive you mad with the cold. The same people who whinged about spring being late and about the ground being too hard to plant anything. Or the autumn being too wet and too blustery.

Sometimes I think some people are only happy when they have something to moan about.

Think, if they could channel all that energy into something positive instead. Imagine what amazing things they might achieve.

And they'd probably be so busy achieving that they wouldn't have any time left to complain.

  1. Didn't you write something else somewhere about moaning? Must be a hot topic! Pardon the pun.

    I am not moaning, I think it's fabulous. But our poor birch trees have gone into premature autumn. So, yes, a little rain would be great. But only at night when we're all asleep...

    Otherwise, warm evenings, swimming without getting hypothermia, ice cream... no I am not moaning! Well the wasps on my ice-cream are a problem.
