A short working week, again :-)
Scientists have always told us that when the carbon dioxide lever rises warm and dry places like deserts will get even more warm and dry and that places with lots of rain will get even more rain and we have believed them. Well it turns out they only seem to be half right. Studies now show that it is raining more than ever in desert areas 🙂 🙂 🙂 and it’s all because the carbon dioxide level rises 🙂 They have checked the amount of rain that has been falling in all deserts and how the CO2 level has risen during that time.
So if this continues the Sahara desert will become a savanna instead but for us living in already rainy places it seems it’s time to get webbed feet instead 🙂 🙂 🙂 Well no rain here today though, mostly sunny and warm but we had only 5C (41F). not unusual here and I have to admit that it was kind of nice when standing in the sunlight before going to work.
The sun went up at 4 am this morning and will go down at 10:14 pm. But since the angle towards the sun is in our favour it will be light already shortly after three am and it will continue to be light until after 11 pm at night. It’s no use trying to look at stars here at night during summer 🙂
It’s a short working week once again because on Friday we celebrate Midsummer. It is as big or possibly even bigger than Christmas, or Yule as we call it here and it is all pagan even if the Christian church tried to take over this holiday too. They have never even been close to be successful with that 🙂 🙂 🙂 But more about that on Friday, I hope I can find any local tradition I still haven’t written about here.
It’s time to make something to eat and another cup of tea. The Magpie parents are still nice to their young ones and all is well in the little village at the outskirts of the world.
Have a great day!
